- 2001 Domaine Drouhin Oregon Pinot Noir - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (9/16/2006) 13,5% 39,50€
Light coloured as Pinot should be. The nose is quite lovely and as typical Pinot as I can hope to find: earthy with beetroots and fine red toned fruit. It is mineral and bordering on metallic, yet staying well withing the lovable sphere of minerality. The palate has a fine concetration of fruit without being over the top in any way. Rather there is a lovely savoury vegetal and mineral component balancing the fruit. It is a bit tannic also and needs more age. It has a curious but delicious salty edge to both the nose and the palate. Wonderful, fresh and long aftertaste. This is quite a lovely wine.
