Joseph Drouhin Aloxe Corton 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): Briar notes, underbrush and game complement red and black fruit aromas all merging into supple, moderately dense and beautifully textured flavors underpinned by dusty, ripe and relatively fine tannins and a long, powerful and intense finish suffused with minerality. For all of this wine's strengths however, it is the exquisite balance that will make for old bones. In a word, terrific. Drink: 2009-20. (Apr 2004)

Joseph Drouhin:
DEDICATION TO THE DIVERSITY OF BURGUNDY With close to 90 different appellations, Joseph Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs in all their authenticity and subtle variations. A FAMILY HERITAGE For the last 130 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm, animated by the same passion that inspired the founder of the company.
