Charmes Chambertin Joseph Drouhin 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2014 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru comes from two suppliers, but one was dropped and replaced after last year since they felt quality was not high enough. It was picked on September 19 and 22, completely destemmed and aged for 17 months in oak. I found this showing just a touch of reduction on the nose, but with encouragement it reveals attractive blackberry and bilberry aromas, a touch of violet with time. The palate is smooth on the entry, supple in the mouth with well judged acidity, a pinch of white pepper towards the finish that (like other 2014s at this stage) is structured so that it feels Mazoyères in style. I think they made a good decision giving that grower his P45 -- this is excellent...93-95" Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate 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
