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

Moderate reduction renders the nose unreadable for the moment though there is excellent volume and phenolic ripeness to the generous and impressively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess an opulent even juicy texture yet the overall palate impression is a serious wine of power and grace. This is a bit awkward today but everything is here for this to mature into potentially sensational juice. Burghound.

Bright ruby colour. On the nose, intense aromas of wild cherry, liquorice and mild spices, evolving towards notes of undergrowth and mushroom. On the palate, excellent balance between tannin, acidity and gras (velvety texture). The aftertaste is reminiscent of little red berries.

Das Kredenzen eines Grand Cru von JOSEPH DROUHIN stellt einen ganz besonderen Moment dar und ist immer ein Erlebnis. Der Rebberg der Einzellage GRIOTTE-CHAMBERTIN macht nicht einmal 3 ha aus, aber die Weine, die daraus entstehen, begründen einen eigenen Mythos. Die Fruchtaromatik - Griotten, wie könnte es anders sein - im Bouquet ist überwältigend, verleitet zum Träumen und verheisst vieles. Es ist die Harmonie, die Finesse und die Einheit, die diesem grossen Gewächs die Dimension verleiht, die man sich wünscht. Das Finale wiederspiegelt dies aufs Eindrücklichste.

LaForet Pinot Noir has a brilliant ruby-garnet color. The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant, and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink - fresh and fruity berry flavors with light and elegant tannins.
