Drouhin. Chambolle Musigny Premier Cru. Red Burgundy Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good deep red. Cool, subdued aromas of medicinal dark fruits, spices and mint. Sweet and pliant on entry, with licorice and mint flavors, then firm mineral-driven acidity energizes the back half and extends the finish. Finishes with good palate-saturating breadth and suave tannins. This seems ready to bottle. ...89-92" IWC 1/11 "The 2009 Chambolle Premier Cru is a lovely wine that is cut form the much more forward side of the vintage. The nose jumps from the glass in a blend of cherries, plums, mustard seed, lovely soil tones, coffee and vinesmoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite broad-shouldered for this bottling, with a lovely, succulent attack, fine-grained tannins, a fine core and good, tangy acids adding lift and focus on the long and classy finish. Fine juice...91" JG 11/10

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.
