Chambolle Musigny Joseph Drouhin 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

90 Points, Burghound: "An exceptionally fresh and cool nose is comprised of ripe red current and dark cherry aromas that are freely laced with floral and spice hints. There is a fleshy, even generous and succulent mouth feel to the medium weight flavors that coat the palate on the mineral and saline-inflected finale that deliver first-rate length. This moderately firm effort is a terrific Chambolle villages and worth investigating. Recommended." 04/16 90+ Points, John Gilman: "The Drouhin family’s Chambolle AC all hails from villages parcels down near the RN-74, with the exception of one plot of vines up closer to the premier crus in aux Exchanges. The 2014 was still in barrel and really showing lovely potential at the time of my tasting, delivering a pure and sappy nose of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, woodsmoke, gamebird, a touch of mustard seed and a lovely signature of soil tones. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very focused, with lovely mid-palate depth, suave tannins and a long, vibrant and still quite primary finish. High class villages! 2020-2050."

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
