Our Wines

Rolling Hills of Oregon

Domaine de Broglie is located in the Dundee Hills in the northern part of the Willamette Valley. The winery itself resides less than one mile from where the first Pinot Noir vines were planted in the region, and today the area is considered as the origination for some of Oregon’s most acclaimed vineyards.

Dundee Hills Cuvée Pinot Noir bottle

Domaine de Broglie
Dundee Hills Cuvée | Pinot Noir

Sourced from several different Pinot Noir clones, including 777, 667, and 115, the 2018 Domaine de Broglie Cuvée presents lush, sweet, forward fruit, and shows intense savory spiciness in the mid palate, with fine tannins on the finish. The Cuvée boasts exceptional clarity. Notes of cherries, strawberries, and mulberries dominate while hints of allspice and star anise peek through on a palate. This wine has beautiful silky length that reveals subtle kisses of earth and flower petals on the finish.

Pinot Noir Block A – Clone 114 bottle

Domaine de Broglie
Pinot Noir | Block A – Clone 114

Block A is one of the original plantings of Pinot Noir on the Domaine de Broglie estate, planted in 1999 with Pinot Noir Clone 114.  Planted at 860-860 feet, much of the block is western facing. Clone 114 has small, compact clusters, but is rich with color and concentration.

 

Clean and straightforward with significant texture, the 2018 Block A Clone 114 Pinot Noir has an elegant profile highlighted by red fruit and soft tannins. Candy apple and pomegranate aromas mingle with scents of licorice wood and spices. Strawberry and red fruits drive the front, with a delicate mid palate leading to a subtle tannic finish.

Pinot Noir Block C – Clone 777 bottle

Domaine de Broglie
Pinot Noir | Block C – Clone 777

Block C, an 8-acre parcel, is planted exclusively with Clone 777 and resides at the highest altitude of all our vineyards. This block is shaped like a spherical cap, giving it sun exposure on all sides. Block C also presents our sweetest selections of fruit and those with the most predominant floral qualities. Clone 777 was introduced to the Willamette Valley in the 1970s and 1980s as the local industry worked with the University of Burgundy in France to introduce new Pinot Noir vines that would flourish in the unique terroir of Oregon. This clone can bring the best from the terroir it’s planted on.

 

Intense and concentrated, dark cherry fruit is evident on the nose with frontal forward red fruit flavor. Subtle spicy woodiness with a trace of vanilla. Mid-palate is balanced with firm, but relatively fine tannins. This wine is very well rounded with deep color and balanced structure. It is drinkable young, because of the forward fruit, but it also has the structure and acidity to age well for a long time.

Pinot Noir Block G - Pommard Clone bottle

Domaine de Broglie
Pinot Noir | Block G - Pommard Clone

Block G ripens quickly, due to its position at a slightly lower elevation, where the climate is a bit warmer. The 4-acre block is planted with two different Pinot Noir clones: 777 and Pommard. While we typically use this fruit for blending, the 2018 Pommard once again demonstrated beautiful texture and complexity, entitling it to its own stand-alone bottling. As the original Pinot Noir clone planted in the Willamette Valley, Pommard has been the workhorse of the Oregon wine industry and helped to build the region’s reputation for world-class Pinot Noir.

 

The 2018 Block G Pommard Clone is lush, jammy, and dense. Dark deep notes of rhubarb and plum on the nose complemented by sweet toast aromatics of butterscotch. Bright acidity accentuates flavors of cranberry and sweet cherry, with subtle tones of black pepper on the finish.

Pinot Gris bottle

Domaine de Broglie
Pinot Gris

Domaine de Broglie is located in the Dundee Hills,  a single continuous landmass in the northern part of the Willamette Valley that rises roughly 800 feet above the valley floor. The Dundee Hills feature Jory soils, a rich red clay formed by ancient volcanic basalt.

Sourced from several vineyard blocks in the Dundee Hills, our 2018 Pinot Gris boasts aromatic complexity and purity of flavor. The wine shows richness, weight, and concentration but also has vibrancy. Nuances of pear, pineapple, tangerine, and pink grapefruit mingle with floral essences. An undercurrent of minerals gives the wine an elegant edge.

Chardonnay bottle

Domaine de Broglie
Chardonnay

This is the first Chardonnay produced from a vineyard that was grafted from Pinot Gris in February of 2017. Bright, with strong characteristics of citrus, lemon zest is prominent on the nose as are notes of peach, kumquat, and ginger. There is a fair amount of minerality with nuances of flint. Barrel fermentation and secondary malolactic fermentation lend creaminess. Subtle wood impressions on the finish.

Rosé bottle

Domaine de Broglie
Rosé

Bright citrus, cranberry, and floral nose, giving a whiff of perfume. Crisp and bright palate, lots of citrus notes, but balanced acidity. Very clean and refreshing. This wine is dry but still shows some fruit character of cranberry, raspberry, and white peach, ending with grapefruit and slight minerality resembling wet stone, with a trace of tannic grip on the finish. A light soft orange color adds to the visual brilliance of this wine.
