Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Laurene 2016 - Suckling 96 Points
Regular price $73.00
This is Drouhin's entry level pinot noir, and it's off the charts good with the 2016 vintage, which was very strong across the entire Willamette Valley. Like most of the '16s, there is so much fresh, juicy fruit charm here it's tempting - and allowable - to just pull the cork. But there's also so much stuffing that those with patience will be rewarded! Your call.
From Suckling: "Incredible clarity and purity of dark red cherries on the nose here. This is a stunning young pinot. The palate has a very plush, fleshy and concentrated core of rich black cherries with toasty oak spice overlaid. Long, noble tannins. This is exceptional. Drink or hold."
