Drouhin Corton Bressandes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Discreet wood does not detract unduly from the very ripe cassis and blackberry liqueur aromas that evidence a top note of menthol. There is excellent mid-palate concentration and fine phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements that help to impart a suave and velvety texture to the round and notably serious flavors that terminate in a gorgeously long finish. *This is really most impressive and if there is such a thing as a "bargain" grand cru, this would qualify*.burghound.com*very limited quantity - less than a case available*

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.
