Dreyfus Ashby Inc Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir 01 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

All of the Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir is handpicked into 25-pound totes, then hand sorted and destemmed at the four-level gravity flow winery. Fermentations are long and careful. By the middle of November, all of the wine was safely in barrel. Approximately 20% new oak is used with the Pinot Noir, which allows the character of the wine and vintage to show through. Barrels are custom made in Burgundy, using oak from France's best forests. The goal is to produce Pinot Noirs with balance, elegance and finesse.

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

Earthy on the nose with a slight hardness to the autumnal, forest floor notes that cover the jammy and yet not sweet core of fruit. This is very savory and very quinine- and floral-scented. Big acids on entry but they are joined by some slightly astringent red fruits that fill the mouth, lending this a fine texture. This remains a bit lean on the mid-palate, but with good aromatic intensity to the complex, spicy red fruit. The wine finishes a bit short and raw. This needs some time to fully integrate. 88pts

The 2007 Pinot Noir triangulates beautiful fruit, beautiful structure and beautiful balance. On the palate, the wine shows classic Dundee Hills character, with loads of spice and red fruits.

"The Pinot Noir triangulates beautiful fruit

90 Points - The Wine Advocate"The 2007 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is the bottling most people are likely to encounter. Medium ruby-colored, it has a fragrant perfume of cedar, spice box, eucalyptus/menthol, cherry, and raspberry. Made in an elegant, racy style, this medium-bodied effort has a vibrant core of spicy red fruits, moderate ripe tannin, excellent intensity, and savory flavors. It will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2019."
