Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Laurène is a very pure expression of our estate, with clear notes of cherry, black cherry and red fruits. On the palate, I find great depth and freshness, traits more commonly used to describe Burgundy, but very present here. The finish is long and graceful, and I love the harmony, balance and complexity. Though enjoyable now, this is very much a vin de garde - a wine to hold for the long term. I expect that you will be able to cellar the 2010 Laurène for the next 10 years, but 15 years wouldn't be a surprise at all.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 95
Wine & Spirits
Generous from start to finish, Laurene marries DOmaine Drouhin's traditional elegance with tremendous energy and vitality. Scents of plum and black cherry, dark and forward, are framed by warm oak spice, all marked by a high tone. Within all that generosity of flavor is a wild, vinous quality - the native yeast fermentation perhaps - guiding the wine without gettiing in its way.
WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
This reserve-level Pinot from DDO is exceptional in every way. Silky, elegant and deeply-fruited, it marries a plush midpalate of red berries and cherries to compelling grace notes of pine needle, cola and mocha. Delicious and ageworthy; if past vintages are any indication, this can go until 2029.
Cellar Selection

Wine Spectator
A lithe red, with a vibrant balance to ripe strawberry jam, rose petal and spice flavors, finishing with a light lift. Drink now through 2017.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Domaine Drouhin's roughly 2,000 cases of 2010 Pinot Noir Laurene won't come on the market until next year, but its sappy intensity of lightly-cooked black raspberry fruit; ultra-polished tannins; rich animal fat savor; and alluring wreath of floral perfume, all make for a delightful performance today. I admit to having sensed a whiff of reductive reticence both when I first started swirling the glass and in the finish. But the issue is for now moot given the anticipated release date; and one can already anticipate at least ten or a dozen years of pleasure from this bottling.

Domaine Drouhin Oregon, Oregon
Domaine Drouhin Oregon Domaine Drouhin Oregon Tasting Room 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.

Robert Drouhin’s vision of an Oregon estate winery that could rival the great vineyards of Burgundy has been realized at DDO. From what began as test plantings of cloned Pinot Noir rootstock, Domaine Drouhin now encompasses 124 acres of hillside vineyards. Interspersed with the Pinot Noir vines are 11 acres of Chardonnay, planted at various elevations and, like in Burgundy, planted right alongside rows of Pinot Noir.

The Drouhin Family’s winemaking roots run deep, having taken hold in Burgundy’s best vineyards more than a century ago. Through the years, there has been a very clear link, a continuum, that inhabits Maison Joseph Drouhin, and now Domaine Drouhin Oregon.

View all products

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half, organically. While the valley claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both character and grace.
