Joseph Drouhin Chambolle Musigny 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

"(25% vendange entier; includes estate fruit as well as purchased grapes from vines worked by Drouhin): Medium red. Slightly medicinal aromas of black cherry, menthol and mint. Juicy, firmly built and energetic, in a distinctly dry style. A bit tannic and reticent for young village wine but finishes with good length. I suspect that this wine could be carafed and then serve chilled for its youthful fruit, but I'd rather wait a couple years." - Vinous

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.

Lighter than an Oregon Pinot, spicy crisp and tasty

Eine sortentypische, vielschichtige Aromatik von reifen Früchten (Beeren, Kirschen) und dezenten, streng-herben Noten entfaltet sich im Glas. Die Ausgewogenheit und die Finesse sind das Markenzeichen dieses Chambolle-Musigny von JOSEPH DROUHIN. Im Gaumen eröffnet sich eine Welt von leckeren Fruchtnoten, von samtiger Textur mit Schmelz und von fruchtiger Struktur. Es ist ein Klassiker par excellence, der viele Vorzüge eines Burgunders der besten Machart in sich vereint.
