Drouhin Griotte Chambertin 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Drouhin Griotte-Chambertin is a magical example of the vintage. The deep, pure and very sappy nose soars from the glass in a complex blend of red and black cherries, vinesmoke, grilled meat, mustard seed, brilliantly complex soil tones, coffee and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully transparent, with a great core of sappy fruit, a stunning signature of soil, ripe tannins and laser-like focus on the perfectly balanced, seamless and very, very long finish. What a great wine!..97" JG 1/12 "Moderate reduction renders the nose unreadable for the moment though there is excellent volume and phenolic ripeness to the generous and impressively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess an opulent, even juicy texture yet the overall palate impression is a serious wine of power and grace...92-95" BH 4/12

Bright ruby colour. On the nose, intense aromas of wild cherry, liquorice and mild spices, evolving towards notes of undergrowth and mushroom. On the palate, excellent balance between tannin, acidity and gras (velvety texture). The aftertaste is reminiscent of little red berries.

Moderate reduction renders the nose unreadable for the moment though there is excellent volume and phenolic ripeness to the generous and impressively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess an opulent even juicy texture yet the overall palate impression is a serious wine of power and grace. This is a bit awkward today but everything is here for this to mature into potentially sensational juice. Burghound.
