Winery Details

    Ultra-luxury producer, 00 Wines “Double Zero” release its 2018 vintage themed Le Réve, the Dream. With the vintage release, collectors have early, though limited, ability to obtain an allocation of the wines available to club members and enthusiasts alike.

    Family-owned and operated in the Willamette Valley, and in partnership with their international team in France, 00 Wines produced approximately 1,500 cases of its 2018 vintage, blending bi-continental winemaking talents in pursuit of excellence. With Willamette Valley’s longer, more consistent growing season than previous vintages and few days exceeding 90 degrees, the 2018 wines express a purity of place, balanced fruit and acidity, and a lushness that provides a generous drinking experience now, and with future aging potential.

    00 Wines continues to acquire accolades for their 2017 vintage release from world-renowned critics. Due to the winery’s status among the word’s top burgundy collectors, limited access to the flagship VGW Chardonnay, EGW Chardonnay, and VGR Pinot Noir remains available to club members. For serious enthusiasts, the 2018 release is an opportunity to enjoy true mastery while allocation exists. 00 Wines’ proprietor Chris Hermann explains, “2018 was the first vintage produced with new winemaker, Wynne Peterson-Nedry. Her experience growing up and making wine in the Willamette Valley, combined with Pierre Millemann’s old world influence, has come together to create magic in a bottle.”

    Notably in the 2018 release, 00 Wines expands on its two-year program with the production of the Freya Hermann Cuvée allowing two years of age in 500L oak barrel. Additionally, the single vineyard Kathryn Hermann Cuvée makes a debut after 23-months of aging in barrel, inspired by proprietor Kathryn Hermann and her favorite vineyard, Chehalem Mountain Vineyard, from which it is made.

Press Review
    00 Double Zero Wines VGW Chardonnay 2021
    00 VGW Chardonnay 2021 VGW is the cheaper of the two Double Zero Chardonnays I tasted, and I like it a bit more, but must admit EGW is a slightly better wine in its composition and length, just by a smidge. It comes from Willamette Valley that rhymes like Wil-LAM-ette – DAMN-it, or Will-Am-It and NOT Will-A-Met. Just saying…
    Truffles and hazelnut paste, fresh and baked red apples, maple glazed leg ham. There’s loads of ripe pineapple with mint in the mix but there’s also a great deal of tension here with energy flying high and low. Feels more tight and umami than EGW. It has a strong sensation of flint rocks starting the fire and this follows throughout in aroma and flavour profile. Pink grapefruit and sweet lime finish. It may not be as collected or as complex or smooth as the EGW but has an energetic and textural appeal that whispers me a little more. But this is personal. A beautiful wine, no matter how you look at it
