User Reviews for Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny

Winemaker's Notes:

Chambolle is situated in the central part of the Côte-de-Nuits, surrounded by a sea of vines. Since the Roman times, the old Celtic village of Cambola has always been highly regarded for its vineyards. It is during the Middle-Ages that the monks perfected the art and technique of viticulture. Joseph DROUHIN is an important propriétaire of various Premier Cru vineyards in Chambolle-Musigny. The Pinot Noir grape is vinified in the typical Burgundian style : slow maceration (18 days) with daily pumping over and punching down of the cap to extract the famed "goût de terroir" of Chambolle. After 18 months in barrels and fining with egg-whites, the wine is bottled. The wines of Chambolle have always been highly prized for their finesse and elegance. The colour is lovely. Aromas are very complex and evoke violet, cherries and humus, with blackberry and noble tannins coating the palate. Extremely well balanced, the wine has a very persistent, rounded finish. With age, the aromas turn to mushroom and underbrush, while conserving all their finesse.
