Domaine Drouhin Arthur Chardonnay 2013

Oregon

£22.95 per bottle

Currently more Burgundy than Oregon but a further 12 to 24 months bottle age will bring this Chardonnay back home. Reticent at first, but then unfurling with a little aeration with subtle mineral notes, spice and flint. There seems more tension than previous vintages. I imagine richer notes will emerge over the course of the next 3-5 years.

Region

Oregon is located to the South of Washington state on the Northwest of the USA and is known across the world for producing some of the world’s finest Pinot Noir, despite the fact that wines from Oregon have only really become popular in the last 50 years. Wines from Oregon are often said to have a very Burgundian style, with aromas of its classic Pinot Noir being spiced black cherries and stewed strawberries and the colour is usually a deep, cherry red.
From the Willamette Valley in Oregon, we love Eyrie Vineyards’ wines and are incredibly lucky to be one of the few wine merchants in the UK to stock their rare wines.
