“Laurene” is a huge leap in quality from Drouhin’s classic Pinot bottling. As expected, velvety in texture with Laurene’s telltale dark cherry and plum fruits. There is a lovely purity to the 2011 however, and by past experiences, another few years in the bottle will deliver a far superior wine.

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.
