2017 Roserock Chardonnay, Domaine Drouhin, Oregon, USA
"Aged 10 months in about 15% new oak, the 2017 Chardonnay gives scents of apple pie, Meyer lemon and quince with notes of crushed stone, toast and Greek yogurt. Light to medium-bodied and silky, it has restrained, minerally fruits with juicy acidity and a long finish." Frin Brooks, The Wine Advocate
Burgundian soul meets American soil at Domaine Drouhin, the leading Oregon Pinot Noir producer run by Veronique Drouhin. At the very heart of Domaine Drouhin's Oregon 225-acre estate are the 85 acres of hillside vineyards in Oregon's Red Hills, which produce two acclaimed Pinot Noir Cuvees and a very limited amount of Chardonnay. These vineyards share a nearly identical climate, latitude and aspect with their counterparts in France.
