Domaine/Maison Joseph Drouhin Chambolle Musigny Premier Cru les Amoureuses Pinot Noir Burgundy Cote de Nuits 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Chambolle was really special in 2008, and the les Amoureuses from Joseph Drouhin is everything one could imagine from this most elegant of vintages. The brilliant nose offers up an utterly refined mélange of red berries, cherries, coffee, mustards seed, great minerality, woodsmoke, coffee and a perfumed topnote of dusty rose. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and very intensely flavored, with glorious minerality, a sappy core of red fruit, beautiful complexity and superb grip and focus on the modestly tannic, tangy and very transparent finish. A great Amoureuses...94+" JG 11/09

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.
