Question: Who are some of the main Burgundy producers that are now in Oregon?
Answer: There have been quite a few since the Drouhin family first established their Domaine Drouhin Oregon pinot noir release in 1988. Jacques Lardiere after 40+ years at Louis Jadot (with Guillaume Large) is developing Resonance Wines. Dominique Lafon (with Thomas Savre) influenced Evening Land & Lingua Franca. Jean-Nicolas Meo of Meo-Camuzet has Nicolas-Jay with Jay Boberg. Your scribe visited Nicolas-Jay winery earlier this month and was impressed tasting their 2021 pinot noirs in barrel. Henriot Champagne (owners of Bouchard Pere) are invested in Beaux Freres. There are many others as well from both Burgundy and elsewhere.
