|A Tale of French Oregon鈥擶ines from Domaine Drouhin
If you are a wine connoisseur vapormax off white prix , you appreciate the similarities and differences between Old World and New World wines. Domaine Drouhin gives you the best of both.
Putting Wine on the Map
Wine may have originated in Black Sea Georgia over 8,000 years ago, but for the last few centuries France has been the epitome of “wine country.” Things change, of course. Today, the Pacific Northwest has shifted the center of gravity for the wine universe. Oregon wine and Washington wine are among the world’s finest.
Is it any surprise that one of France’s most noted winemakers expanded to Oregon? Southwest of Portland, Oregon nike vapormax flyknit noir , in Dayton, Domaine Drouhin (DDO) provides a new world of tastes with Old World care and expertise.
Starting in France
Domaine Drouhin was created by Maison Joseph Drouhin, a French company producing wines in Burgundy, France. For the last 130 years, the Drouhin name has built a reputation for excellence, innovation and nurturing care for the plants nike vapormax homme noir , the soil and the environment. Today, Joseph Drouhin’s four grandchildren helm the enterprise. And it is granddaughter V茅ronique Boss-Drouhin who manages Domaine Drouhin Oregon. V茅ronique has been called the “guardian” of the Joseph Drouhin style鈥攁 style which “marries balance, harmony, finesse and character.”
The company describes the ages of their wines, “Young, they possess fruity and enticing aromas; with age nike vapormax femme rose , wines from great vineyardsappellations acquire a sumptuous complexity.”
Maison Joseph Drouhin was one of the first winemakers in Burgundy to do away with pesticides and other chemicals (“culture raisonn茅e”), all part of their philosophy “to bring natural answers to natural problems.”
From controlling genetic heritage of their vine stocks by growing them in their own nursery to the use of herb infusions and natural predators to maintain the health of their vines, the Drouhin enterprise has long worked hard to produce the best wines, deliberately favoring lower yields to allow their grapes “to enhance the true type of each soil.”
An Oregon Presence
DDO was founded in 1988 when Robert Drouhin purchased the estate after having visited Oregon since the 1960’s. The vineyard resides in the Red Hills of Dundee in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.
Domaine Drouhin Oregon specializes in Pinot noirs (including their Laur猫ne cuv茅e which debuted in 1992, a stunning Oregon Pinot noir) and Chardonnays.
Amongst their Pinot noir vines, severe pruning allows only 4 bottles of wine for every 5 vines. They have found this the optimum level of output nike vapormax 2018 prix , resulting in ” silky, elegant, and age-worthy wines.” They sacrifice quantity in order to attain the peak of flavor potential.
Their Chardonnay vines come from a choice selection of Dijon clones, originating in Burgundy. Their Chardonnay Arthur comes entirely from their estate.
Tours can be arranged through their website at http:www.domainedrouhin. And be prepared for a pleasant surprise鈥攖hat of tasting wines from Oregon and Burgundy side-by-side.

Lawyers for ousted South Korean president Park Geun-hye denied all the charges against her at a hearing Tuesday before she goes on trial.
Park nike air vapormax pas cher , 65, was sacked by the country's top court in March over a wide-ranging corruption scandal and has been held in custody for more than a month.
She faces 18 criminal counts - five of bribery and 11 of abuse of power, plus one each of coercion and leaking government secrets.
"We deny all the charges," Park's top lawyer Yoo Young-ha told the Seoul Central District Court.
Park's attendance at the hearing was not mandatory and she stayed away from the court.
In South Korea, a preliminary hearing is to review the charges brought against a suspect and determine future proceedings.
Yoo said the defence had been overwhelmed by the prosecution's 120,000 pages of investigation records and needed more time to go over them.
The court decided to hold another session next week and open full proceedings a week later.
The scandal centers on Park's longtime friend Choi Soon-sil nike air max 97 premium femme , who is already on trial for corruption.
When indicting Park last month, prosecutors asserted that Park, in collusion with Choi, took or was promised bribes totalling 59.2 billion won ($52 million) from three South Korean companies, Samsung, Lotte and SK air max 97 undefeated vert , in return for policy favors.
She has also been charged with coercing 18 large firms to "donate" a total of 77.4 billion won to two dubious foundations controlled by Choi.
Apple Inc may have started to pay patent royalties to Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co, the Beijing Youth Daily reported Tuesday.

Huawei declined to reveal financial details of the patent deals when contacted by the Beijing Youth Daily.
Huawei has reached similar patent deals with other IT giants. For instance, it agreed in January with Sweden's Ericsson AB to extend a global patent deal that allows the companies to access each other's essential patents and technologies globally.
As of the end of 2015, Huawei had filed 52,550 patent applications in China and 30,613 applications abroad. A total of 50,377 patents had been granted by that time air max 97 undefeated blanche , the report said.
