Drouhin Cotes de Beaune 2006
90 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The straight Chassagne AC from Maison Drouhin (the Laguiche bottling is actually made up of a couple of premier crus, primarily Morgeot) is lovely in 2006. The wine is precise and racy, and avoids the high alcohol levels that plague so many 2006 whites, as it offers up a classic bouquet of apple, peach, buttered toast, a lovely base of soil and a discreet touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and quite classy for Chassagne villages, with no heaviness, and a generous attack followed up by a lovely, racy and minerally finish. Good juice. 2007-2015. (Nov/Dec 2007)
