Winemaker's Notes:

I am very proud of our Chardonnay vines, which surprise and delight me each vintage.  The 2007 Arthur has all of the delicate, floral aromatics we see from our estate – the carnation and magnolia scents, with touches of lemon peel and other citrus fruits – but there is an extra texture and dimension to the 2007 that takes the wine to a new level.  Crisp on the palate, with a long finish, this wine is lovely now, and will develop nicely for at least the next 3-5 years.

About Domaine Drouhin Oregon:

Established in 1987, Domaine Drouhin Oregon is owned by famed Burgundy producer, Maison Joseph Drouhin. Hand-crafted by fourth generation winemaker, Veronique Drouhin-Boss, the distinctive Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of Domaine Drouhin are prized for their elegance, balance and finesse, as well as their ability to age. Philippe Drouhin, Veronique's brother, is in charge of viticulture and has earned an international reputation for his work both in Burgundy and Oregon. Ninety acres of the 225-acre estate are now planted, with over 3100 vines per acre. Domaine Drouhin Oregon's landmark 4-level gravity flow winery is nestled into the heart of the Dundee Hills.
