    True to their motto: "French Soul, Oregon Soil," Domaine Drouhin is the benchmark for Willamette Valley wines, expressing the delicacy and finesse of Burgundy varietals, with Oregon grit. Pressed whole cluster from 100% Dijon Clones, the 2015 "Arthur" Chardonnay is named after winemaker Véronique Drouhin's son, and is represents all Chardonnay can be: mineral driven with focused acidity, yet generously textured and powerful. Aromas of just ripe golden delicious apple and underripe pineapple are followed by a palate brimming with almost saline minerality, lemon zest and light brioche, with an enduring, sensual finish.

    A lovely new release from Domaine Drouhin - “Arthur” is named for Dominque Drouhin’s son and comes from mature (30 year old) vines on the estate. The wine was fermented partly in French oak and partly in stainless steel. The two resulting wines were then married together to create what Dominique likens to a Meursault meeting a Chablis. There’s ripe orchard fruit, honeysuckle and pear blossom floral notes; warm pie crust and stone ground flour. The palate has great texture and weight without being overly heavy or creamy. The wine has fantastic length and purity on the palate.

    Once again Domaine Drouhin hits the sweet spot with their "Arthur" bottling resulting in intense and complex flavors with a clean and focused frame. Apple, vanilla, citrus and a touch of baking spice are all embedded in a tight and steely frame of gun flint and mineral with just enough texture to showcase the fruit profile.
