  • This was lovely and one of the best PN's I have had from Oregon in recent memory. The nose reminded me a lot of the 2010 Evening Land La Source PN, with a little less depth. I think this wine will get better with time assuming that it can gain a little weight. Excited to try this again in a few years.

  • This is a near perfect balance between Sonoma and Burgundy Pinot Noir. It's full and juicy but it has sophisticated aromas and flavors along with a subtle green note.

  • Oops, Allen Meadows gives a drinking window for the 2010 Laurene starting 2020 -- I'm a mere 5 years off! That said, this wine is certainly drinking well right now. It helps to put yourself in the context of the Willamette Valley and not Beaune, no matter what the PR folks at Domaine Drouhin will tell you. This pinot is unmistakably American but with more poise and refinement. The fruit is still a tad heavy on the mid-palette with overtones more of wood than earth but overall the wine is well integrated and balanced. This is a much better showing than other recent tastings of Domaine Drouhin wines.
