Chambolle Musigny les Amoureuses Joseph Drouhin 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar: "The 2014 les Amoureuses had been racked only a week prior to my tasting it, but the wine was showing beautifully despite its having changed residences. The wine included fifteen percent whole clusters in this vintage and offers up a stunning young bouquet of red and black cherries, beetroot, gamebirds, mustard seed, a gorgeous base of chalky soil tones, a touch of vanillin oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure on the attack, with a sappy core, superb soil inflection, great balance and focus and a very long, suavely tannic and tangy finish. There is a fine sense of reserve out of the blocks here that augurs very, very well for its future development in bottle. A gorgeous wine. 2024-2075." 12/15

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
