Wine Review: This very pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Domaine Drouhin is Excellent! It opens with a mild Bartlett pear bouquet with hints of crushed seashell and mango. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, super smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is a tasty mild oak and Bartlett pear blend with notes of mango and chalky minerality. I also detected hints of pineapple and lemon tea. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely. The Oregon Chard would pair very nicely with crab cakes. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Expressive and vibrant, our 2021 Chardonnay Arthur opens with a flourish of tart green apple and a focused bouquet of orange blossom and nicely ripe melon. There is lemon zest, honeysuckle, and fresh almonds on the palate, with a note of pear essence on the finish. It is drinking beautifully now with nice balanced acidity and a medium-long finish. Expect great things as it develops over the next 7-10 years.
