    Winemaker's Notes:

    Everything that I love about the 07 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is accentuated in the 07 Laurène; even more complexity, more fruit, and more loveliness. The trademark of the vintage for us is its precision, the purity of flavor, clearly layered across the palate. The texture is very fine, and the flavors are a burst of fresh red fruits, in contrast to the darker fruits of recent vintages. As I hope for, the finish is very long, and I expect that we can all enjoy the 2007 Laurène for at least 10 years or more!

    Critical Acclaim:

    A fresh, elegant and complex nose blends both upper and lower register fruit aromas, in particular red currant and plum, along with subtle soil undertones that lead to delicious, detailed and equally complex medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent focus, balance and persistence on the beautifully long finish that displays an attractive touch of austerity. If you wanted to pick nits, you could say that this is not as dense as some prior vintages but I would counter with how lovely this wine is to simply drink, which is what really counts. Well worth your interest.

    A powerfully built pinot with firm underpinnings of dark, mocha-like oak flavors, this takes a day to uncoil. With air an ethereal red cherry fruit is revealed, adorning a fine burnished texture and polished tannins. This is a subtle wine that is certain to grow more expressive with age.

    Firm in texture, displaying fine tannins around pretty rose petal-accented guava and rhubarb fruit, hinting at cinnamon as the finish extends.

    The 2007 Pinot Noir Laurene is produced entirely from estate fruit. Medium ruby-colored, it displays a superb bouquet of smoke, earth notes, cinnamon, allspice, wild cherry, and raspberry. Smooth textured and graceful on the palate, this medium-bodied wine has layers of succulent fruit, lively acidity, plenty of earthy spice notes, moderate tannin, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for another 2-3 years and drink well through 2022. Domaine Drouhin has been producing wine in the Willamette Valley since 1988 making them one of the veterans of the Oregon wine scene. The 2007s are particularly good because of the vibrant natural acidity of the vintage. It is increasingly apparent that Oregon Pinot Noir from top producers in strong vintages can easily provide pleasure for 20+ years.
