It was a beautiful summer’s day in July 1987 when Véronique and Robert Drouhin first surveyed some exceptionally beautiful land that would one day become Domaine Drouhin Oregon. This plot, which had previously been used for growing wheat and Christmas trees, was soon planted with Burgundian varieties. Today, the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes grown here are considered among the best in the world. Véronique was appointed as the estate’s oenologist at the age of 24, while her brother Philippe was put in charge of viticulture. And the rest of the family story is found in the wines. Véronique named some of her fine products after her children. Laurène is a Pinot Noir with smoky and earthy notes, as well as orange peel and white pepper on the nose, and excellent aging potential. Arthur is a delicate and pure Chardonnay with crisp acidity and fabulously mineral character. Finally, Louise is also a Pinot Noir known for its elegance and rarity. Roserock is a special Pinot made from a selection of 35 Drouhin vineyards.
