Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Amoureuses 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 les Amoureuses from Maison Drouhin is a beautiful wine in the making, offering up a suave mélange of red and black cherries, blood orange, woodsmoke, mustard seed, gamebirds, a beautifully complex base of soil and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and wonderfully complex already, with a sappy core of fruit, superb transparency, suave tannins and outstanding length and grip on the bright and very elegant finish. A stunning young Amoureuses...94+" JG 01/13 "Medium red with ruby highlights. Very fresh, highly aromatic nose combines blackberry, black cherry, violet and crushed rock. Juicy and tightly wound on first taste but essentially creamy in the middle palate, displaying lovely black fruit and floral perfume. Very fine-grained and long, finishing with firm tannins, well-integrated acidity and resounding savory and mineral qualities. Just a tad warm today at 13.5% alcohol but this should turn out very well...91-94" IWC 02/13

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
