Domaine Drouhin's Arthur is fresh and inviting on the nose, with beautiful citrus, lemon zest, grapefruit, white flowers such as magnolia, even some stony character, and a hint of toast.

The acidity and the sense of minerality will remind you of Chablis, but the mouthfeel is purely Oregon. Very complex, this Chardonnay could be cellared for a couple years.
Ripe, healthy fruit was hand-picked into small totes, and then whole-cluster pressed. Half of the juice was fermented in French Oak barrels (30% new) to create a round, rich texture.
The other half was fermented and aged in stainless steel to maintain the purest and most elegant expression of Chardonnay.
