Hand-picked into small totes, and then whole-cluster pressed. It was partly fermented in French Oak barrels to reveal the complexity of the fruit through the slow breathing process that happens in wood. The rest was fermented and aged in stainless steel to keep the vibrancy and fruitiness.

Domaine Drouhin

When Joseph Drouhin established his eponymous négociant company in 1880, he could scarcely have imagined that his family name would one day grace an estate in Oregon. Purchased by his grandson Robert in 1987, whose eye for an opportunity was instrumental in the company’s post-war success, Drouhin’s Dundee Hills vineyard was joined in 2013 by Roserock Estate in the Eola-Amity Hills. The original site has a remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the great vineyards of Burgundy, whilst Roserock has a cooler climate and volcanic soils; both produce Pinot Noir and Chardonnay of great clarity and finesse. Robert’s children Véronique and Philippe, who oversee winemaking and viticulture respectively, are also on hand to ensure the Drouhin style is present whilst simultaneously allowing Oregon’s unique terroir to shine through.
