Description

Named after Véronique Drouhin's elder daughter, Laurène is the wineries flagship wine, and is produced entirely from Pinot Noir grown on the family's estate in the Dundee Hills. All of the fruit is handpicked into small totes, destemmed, fermented with indigenous yeasts, and then placed into barrels (French oak, never more than 20% new). Once the vintage is safely in the cellar, Véronique begins the process of selecting barrels which have an extra complexity, length and depth — barrels which will work together as Laurène.

93 Points James Suckling - A very pretty pinot with currant bush, minerals, underbrush, blackcurrants, dark cherries and bark. The palate is extremely polished with fine tannins, fresh acidity, lots of dark, blue fruit that remains balanced and lithe, and a fruity, minerally finish. Drink now or hold.

Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Laurene offers a very fragrant nose of exotic spices—anise, cardamom and fenugreek—over a core of pomegranate, rhubarb, Bing cherries, fertile loam and truffles. Medium-bodied with a taut, fine structure of fine tannins and refreshing acid, the fruit has plenty of earth and red berry layers that linger with great persistence.

91 Points Wine Spectator - Well-built and offering a precise and complex core, plus raspberry, black tea and spice box accents that finish with refined tannins. Drink now through 2022.
