Established in 1987, DD Oregon is owned by famed Burgundy producer, Maison Joseph Drouhin. Hand-crafted by fourth generation winemaker, Veronique Drouhin-Boss. Ruby with fruit and sweet floral scents, very French in style. On the palate cherry and blueberry with pepper and earthy notes. Young but integrated tannins, well defined, elegant with underlying richness, long finish.

The man, the myth... his cellar was stormed. This Palmer was opened for 90 mins, and it presents like it was just bottled. Beautiful detail of toasted oak on the nose. Palate shows rich, extracted black fruits, with bold tannins. Bowled over with how this showed today. — a year ago
These old wines need time to open and tasting it as soon as opened it seemed very flat and not much going on. After decanting and sitting around for a few hours it opened up and was still getting better as I fought to get the last bit at a dinner party, very rude guests who drank it all, just sayin. Had a great nose with some flowers, mushrooms, some earth and something sweet going on. A bit rich and had very nice long finish. Excellent wine. — a year ago

Very mineral nose : oyster shell, chalk, crushed rocks, hay. Lemony notes after a while,. The palate is georgous and very well balanced : a strong acid backbone with tangy fruity lemon notes all around. Some grip but some roundness on the edges, a long and delicate fruity finish. This is everything I like in a chablis 1er cru. Splendid — a year ago
