Wine & Spirits 94
Roserock lies on the southern reaches of the EolaAmity Hills near the outskirts of Salem, Oregons state capital. Its a large vineyard, planted mostly to pinot noir save for about 11 acres of chardonnay planted a little over a decade ago. Those vines grew an opulent wine in 2018, made firm and shapely by the coolness of the site and of the Oregon summer. It leads with scents of honey and peach, and has a hazelnut breadth. Its built like a Beaune wine (no surprise there); for a chicken fricassee.-W&S

Wine Enthusiast 93
Drouhin Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills Roserock vineyard is maturing nicely, as this rich, almost unctuous new Chardonnay demonstrates. Rippled with butterscotch around fruit flavors of apples and nectarines, this tasty bottle is buoyed with Meyer lemon acidity, and accented with whiffs of toasted hazelnuts.-WE

James Suckling 93
Some attractive, fresh bread dough here with aromas of clotted cream, poached pears and almond milk. The palate has a smooth outer frame (full MLF here) with a fresh, fleshy core that has supple fruit texture. Drink now.-JS

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92
The 2018 Chardonnay offers bright, fresh apple fruit with deeper, more savory bass notes of honeycomb, almonds and spice. The medium-bodied palate is super silky and bursts with tensile, mineral-laced fruits, expanding into a long, juicy and gently honeyed finish.-RP

Wine Spectator 91
Steely and vibrant, with pinpoint notes of green apple and grapefruit and a trace of flint on the long, crisp finish-WS

The 2018 Roserock Chardonnay conveys a sense of power and elegance. A dense richness is apparent on approach with aromas of dried lemon, sweet-pastry, and Linden flower and Chamomile undertones. Full-bodied and focused, the wine displays supple firmness and excellent depth.-Winemaker Notes

Drouhin Oregon Roserock is the newest chapter in the Drouhin story, extending from Burgundy's Cote dOr and Chablis, to the Dundee Hills of Oregon, and now Oregon's Eola-Amity Hills.
Drouhin Oregon Roserock continues a four-generation story that began in 1880 when Joseph Drouhin moved from Chablis to Beaune, in the heart of Burgundy.
In Oregon, as in Burgundy, the Drouhin Family farms singular, expressive parcels of land. The Roserock Vineyard sits at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills, in Oregon's Willamette Valley and is marked by volcanic soils, cooler temperatures and an ideal elevation range. Farmed by Phillipe Drouhin, Roserock is certified sustainable.-Winery Notes
