Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Domaine Drouhin Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2018

Our Pinot Noir is handpicked into 25-pound totes, then hand sorted and de-stemmed at our four level gravity flow winery. Fermentations are long and careful and by November, all of our Pinot is safely in barrel. Our barrels are custom made in Burgundy, using oak from France’s best forests, allowing the character of the soil and vintage to show through.

The 2018 Dundee Hills offers a fragrant nose of bright black cherries, berry bramble, orange peel, golden brown spices and a touch of sweet oak. Layered behind are notes of red berries and rhubarb. Flavors of red plum, boysenberry and cassis mingle with a savory trio of white pepper, forest floor and sassafras. Elusive and elegant, this wine is wonderful now but will be in a perfect place with 5 – 12 years of cellaring. 

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 94:
Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Dundee Hills opens with savory notions of leather, graphite and tobacco with a core of red and blue berry fruits. The palate is medium-bodied with concentrated, incredibly spicy flavor layers, firm and super fresh, and it finishes very long and flavorful. Give it another 2-3 years in bottle.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 3/1/2022 - Rated 94:
This is the standard bearer for DDO, all estate fruit and yet produced in sufficient quantities (and priced affordably) to be widely available. It opens with scents of rose petals and blue fruits, introducing an elegant and polished wine with exceptional concentration. It's full-bodied and powerful, with good tension between the ripe blue fruits and the supporting acidity. As with all of Véronique Drouhin's wines, the balance of aromas, flavors and finish makes for a lingering and complete tasting experience. PAUL GREGUTT
