Winemaker Notes

2006 provided an abundance of wonderfully ripe & healthy fruit displayed by the complexity in the Arthur. The nose first reveals aromas of carnation & magnolia followed by a hint of toast & lemon zest. After some time, the bouquet transitions to lemon verbena, cantaloupe & lychee. Wonderfully balanced, the Arthur is round & full on the palate leading into a clean, fresh, lingering finish. This incredible length suggests pairings of shellfish & ripe cheeses, or cellaring for 3-5 years.

"Gently smoky pear, quince and Meyer lemon aromas are complicated by lees and sweet butter. Brisk and focused, offering vivid lemon, lime and yellow apple flavors. Gains energy on the long, stony finish, which repeats the tangy citrus qualities. This very nicely balanced chardonnay was raised 50% in cask (15% new) and 50% in stainless steel."
Stephen Tanzer'sInternational Wine Cellar

"Supple and silky in texture, with delicately spicy overtones to the pear and beeswax flavors, lingering well on the finish. Drink now through 2011."

Domaine Drouhin Oregon, Oregon
Domaine Drouhin Oregon Domaine Drouhin's Dundee Hills Estate Winery Image

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.

One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
