Domaine Drouhin Selection Laurene Pinot Noir Oregon 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

"This French-owned estate winery made the right move when it planted a portion of its vineyard in the Red Hills of Dundee with close-spaced vines... more than double the density of the rest of the vineyard. These grapes have consistently made wines with better depth and balance, and form the basis of the Laurène bottling. This one is rich and intense, highly focused to project its aromas and flavors withoutbeing heavy, centering on dazzling raspberry, blackberry, vanilla and roasted game notes that harmonize beautifully on the lively finish. Drink it now through 2008... 93."WS, 02/22/02. Very limited.

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less
