Burgundy Clos de Vougeot. Drouhin Bottles Red 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

As I have observed several times Clos de Vougeot was particularly successful in 2006 and this example is in perfect keeping with that general tendency with an expressive spicy and unusually open nose that offers up aromas of earth red and dark berry fruit and hints of the sauvage that continue onto the ripe intense and youthfully austere flavors that culminate with good power and length. Despite the obvious muscle this is essentially a Clos de Vougeot of finesse as the tannins are really quite fine. Burghound 92 points.

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less

Dieser Clos de Vougeot präsentiert sich strukturiert und tiefgründig. Die Aromatik ist typisch: reife Beerenfrucht (Himbeeren, Wildkirschen), eine Spur von herbalen Noten und Gewürzen. Der Sinneseindruck in der Nase ist sehr fein und vielschichtig. Im Gaumen offenbart sich eine klassische Struktur, die in Verbindung mit den reifen, feinen Gerbstoffen ein fruchtiges, nachhaltiges Genusserlebnis schafft. Im Finale zeigt dieser Burgunder seine Stärken: lange anhaltend, strukturiert und feingliedrig.
