This Chardonnay leads with clean, fresh aromas of apple, honeydew, white flowers, shortcake and a touch of nuttiness. On the palate, the wine is generous and round, with flavors of citrus tart, white peach, almonds and spice with a delicious combination of minerality and richness. The finish is long.
James Suckling 94 - Super fresh aromas of lemon and lime zest, leading to fresh white peaches. This has a very impressive sense of purity and clarity that follows to the fresh, linear palate. Impressively refined chardonnay. Drink now.
Wine Enthusiast 92 - Domaine Drouhin Oregon's new Eola-Amity wine continues to impress. Supple, seductive and rippled with kiwi, apple, citrus and melon flavors, it's nicely ripe and well melded. The barrel influence is modest, which perfectly suits fruit this good.
Wine Spectator 91 - Polished and refined, with expressive apple, ripe cantaloupe and spice flavors that take on richness on the long finish. Drink now through 2020. Top 100 Wine Of 2018
