Our Wines

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 Pinot Noir vineyards.

Domaine de Broglie
Pinot Noir

Sourced from several vineyard blocks on the property, our 2017 Pinot Noir exudes a strong color and delicate aromas suggestive of Bing cherry, jasmine, cinnamon, and clove. The palate carries lively acidity with flavors of fresh red fruits and a hint of sweetness from the oak. The finish lingers while strong tannins make this wine capable of aging harmoniously. Expressive and robust, this wine presents an authentic expression of an excellent vintage.

Pinot Noir | Block B - Clone 114

Block B is the oldest block planted on the property. Clone 114 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 wine country. Facing east toward Mt. Hood, this fruit produces small clusters with small berries, giving it a higher skin to juice ratio than our other blocks. This typically results in wines that are darker in color, more tannic, and expressive of black fruits; although that wasn’t the case with this vintage due to the late season heat.

There is a vibrancy and freshness to our Block B Pinot Noir this year. Boasting garnet color and aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, cherry, and cedar, red berry flavors follow the nose and flow into a savory, supple, melted oak palate where the tannins are subtle and much less aggressive than with some of our other wines. This wine finishes beautifully as a medley of spice notes emerges.

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.

This Pinot Noir displays tremendous complexity. Darkly colored with a purple hue, the wine offers an intense fragrance, good balance, and firm tannins. Aromas of red currant, cherry, hyacinth, and baking spice are tinged with a hint of earth. The palate is silky and round with sweet flavors emboldened by spice notes and a long, dramatic finish.

Pinot Noir | Block G - Pommard Clone

Block G was the first fruit picked early October. This parcel ripens more quickly because it rests 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 block’s fruit for blending, the 2017 Pommard lots demonstrated such beautiful texture and complexity that we decided to keep it for its own stand-alone Block G 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.

Big, lush, and intense, this fruit-forward Pinot Noir demonstrates tremendous balance between ripeness, acidity, and tannins. This is our darkest, most opaquely hued wine of the vintage. Presenting classic aromas of Bing cherry, fresh cranberry, and a hint of cinnamon, the palate is bold with strong, ripe tannins and excellent weight. Notes of anise emerge on the long, elegant finish.
