Gevrey Chambertin Joseph Drouhin 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

90 Points, Burghound: "A deft touch of wood sets off the fresh and airy nose that features plenty of sauvage and pungent earth character on the wild dark currant, humus and a discreet hint of various floral elements. There is lovely energy and underlying tension to the relatively big-bodied flavors that display both touches of austerity and rusticity on the highly persistent but notably firm finish. This is very Gevrey in style with its taut muscularity and it offers very fine quality as the rusticity does not dominate. Also recommended." 04/16 91 Points, John Gilman: "The 2014 Gevrey AC is the pick of the litter of a very strong range of villages bottlings chez Drouhin in this vintage. The really lovely nose offers up a fine constellation of black cherries, black plums, woodsmoke, grilled meat, dark soil tones, mustard seed and just a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very precise, with a sappy core of black fruit, fine focus and grip and a long, soil-driven and moderately tannic finish. 2018-2045+."

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less
