Reviews and Ratings

Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A more serious example of the grape known as Pinot Gris in French or Pinot Grigio in Italian, it's no wonder it's one of the most popular grape varieties in the world. It's fruity, easy to drink and goes with everything. Made by Burgundian royalty, Veronique Drouhin-Boss, it has mouth buzzing aromatics full of fleshy citrus and white flowers. Try with hoisin coated pork ribs?
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From the Burgundian Drouhin family who started making wines in Oregon in 2002; this Pinot Gris is quite vibrant and loveable. Fruity style, medium bodied wine, quite simple in its approach with delicate peach, melon, and apricot notes. A medium length wine. Food pairings such as seafood, and white fish - will sharpen its acidity and complexity.
From Domaine Drouhin, Cloudline 2016 is a dry, crisp and zesty medium-bodied Pinot Gris from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Produced by Véronique Drouhin-Boss, this Pinot Gris is made in the Alsatian style with ripe white peach, melon, citrus and sweet spice flavours on the palate with hints of minerality playing throughout. Cloudline was founded in 2002 by Burgundy's Drouhin family. Serve chilled, but not overly so to experience the wine's subtle nuances. - Community Wine Reviews
