With The Family Coppola’s property in Oregon, Francis wanted to endow the estate with a name that honored the scientific accomplishments of Maison de Broglie, a noble house of France, whose contributions to physics and quantum theory resulted in a Nobel Prize for Louis de Broglie, a man whose scientific achievements coincided with those of Albert Einstein.

Wine Notes

The 2018 Brut Rosé has an expansive nose with dominant notes of tropical citrus, grapefruit, and lemon peel, coupled with a nice trace of nuttiness. Bright flavors on the palate include classic "Brut" notes, pomegranate, grapefruit, and a trace of red fruit and strawberry. There is a wonderful tension between sparkling mouthfeel and acidity, with nut and bread on the finish.

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, essentially making the region its own vinicultural island. The coastal mountain range protects the hills from heavy precipitation and windstorms, giving the region the added benefit of moderate rain and less frigid nighttime temperatures to protect against frost and fog. Unlike other Willamette Valley appellations that have numerous types of sedimentary soils from glacial floods, wind carried soils from the valley floor, and a mix of old and new volcanic material. The Dundee Hills features Jory soils, a rich red clay formed by ancient volcanic basalt. Pinot Noir grown in Dundee Hills therefore exhibits texture and weight, as well as earth, floral, and mineral attributes. Pinot Noir was first planted here in 1965, and a mere twenty years later it was considered one of the premier Pinot Noir regions in the world. Domaine de Broglie resides less than one mile from where the first Pinot Noir vines were planted in the Dundee Hills, and today the area is considered as the point of origin for some of Oregon’s most acclaimed Pinot Noir vineyards.

The fruit was harvested early, and the juice spent only a few hours on the skins to give it a beautiful light pink hue. Early harvest allowed for lower sugar levels in the slightly underripe fruit and a higher acidity that brings a refreshing crispness. The Brut Rosé was bottled in January 2019 to begin secondary fermentation, and en tirage for 18 months, riddled, and finally disgorged in September 2020.
