Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Drouhin Musigny is ripe and very, very pure, with great mid-palate succulence and a stunning base of soil complexity. The celestial nose offers up a beautiful mélange of red and black cherries, dark plums, mustard seed, coffee, beautiful soil tones and a nice framing of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and seamless, with a great core of fruit, impeccable focus and balance, ripe tannins and simply great length and grip...beautiful, beautiful wine that perfectly captures all of the best attributes of the 2009 vintage...97" JG 11/10 "Good medium red. Highly complex, spicy aromas of raspberry, menthol, flowers, white pepper, spices and coffee bean. Sweet and penetrating, with superb intensity and definition to the pure red fruit and floral flavors. At once silky and weightless. Best today on the pure, subtle, rising finish, which displays wonderfully subtle but firm tannins and terrific grip, perfume and length. High class. ..93-96" IWC 1/11

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
