WineScores' Review

Complex, elegant, stunning
Domaine Drouhin, a 235-acre estate, was established in 1987 by Burgundy's Maison Joseph Drouhin in the Willamette Valley's Dundee Hills.
Made from estate grown Dijon clone Chardonnay (some of the oldest Chardy vines in Oregon) the Arthur is a stunning example of the variety. Toasted spice, lemon meringue, grilled baguette, yellow apples, honeysuckle, acacia and oak notes support the nose. It's a statuesque wine, with a lovely weight and impressive intensity. Toast and creamy lemon, golden fruit and mineral flavours roll across the tongue. Complex and elegant with a mouthwatering finish.

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
