Item Number: 17 50 187 11
Domaine Trouvere is the sister label to Lange Vineyards in Oregon's Willamette Valley. Don Lange’s work as a winemaker has been termed "brilliant" by none other than Hugh Johnson and Wine Enthusiast Magazine proclaimed Lange Estate to be "one of the great Pinot Noir producers in the United States." Domaine Trouvere was originally launched to showcase premium vineyard sites and sub-AVA's in the Valley in 2011 the they made this single Pinot Noir using the grapes that they sourced from 15 different prime vineyard sites. Each lot was hand picked, hand sorted and separately vinified. Aged in French oak the wine shows the remarkable character of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. On the nose delicate notes of strawberry, cherry and wood spice; aromas that are distinctly Pinot Noir-centric. It's silky and lithe on the palate with a pure fruit expression that's deep and persistent. Cherry, cola, cranberry and strwberry notes are dusted with asian spices and the bright acidity brings a lengthy and mouthwatering finish. This is serious Willamette Valley Pinot that we found irresistible. We grabbed everything we could and are offering it at special value price to our Wine Express customers. This is absolutely our best value Willamette Valley Pinot Noir offer and perhaps the best one anywhere. Don't miss it!
