Drouhin Joseph Bourgogne 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Die Grand Cru-Lage Montrachet zählt seit Jahrhunderten zu den Terroirs, die als einzigartig eingestuft die Spitze der Qualitätspyramide darstellen. Die Besitzerfamilie Laguiche hält die Tradition seit dem 14. Jahrhundert in ununterbrochener Folge aufrecht und überlässt seit 1947 den Rebbau und die Kelterung ihres Weines der Familie Drouhin, wenn das kein Beweis für deren Kompetenz und Engagement ist! Klein, aber fein lautet im Grand Cru Montrachet die Devise. Feinheit, Filigranität und Harmonie sind Attribute, die uneingeschränkt auch für das erstklassige Gewächs gelten. Die Nachhaltigkeit, die Fruchtlänge und die Ausgewogenheit unterstreichen die Klasse dieses grossartigen Weins, den man mindestens einmal im Leben kredenzt haben sollte. Ein unvergesslicher Moment mit einem grandiosen Charakterwein erwartet sie!

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.

The color is very light clear red. The nose opens tart and fruity, sour cherry and strawberries. The fruit sweetens after the initial tartness, smelling candied with brown sugar or maple. There is also just enough of a whiff of earth to tell you it is likely French.The palate opens all sour fruit, sour cherries and sour strawberries. That sweetns a little on the finish, adding a sense of red licorice. Tannins were slightly drying but smooth.Will this close down on night two, or will it soften and open up, revealing something other than red fruit? Let us find out together.NIGHT TWOSour cherries and strawberries still lead the nose, but there is also some caramel and some sage. It actually seems, on the nose, to have closed a bit from night one. The palate is still sour cherries, but deeper, a bit richer, with blackberries throw in instead of the sweeter strawberries of the night before. A little Dr. Pepper followed, then a hint of spice. Overwhelmingly, though the sour cherries and blackberries deominated from start to finish, without significant transition to midpalate or finish.This is a disappointingly one-dimensional wine. Yes, I know, at $19.99 it is practically free by the standards of 2005 Burgundy, but why bother? There are far more intersting wines from other regions for the same amount of scratch.
