Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny Premiere Cru 2002

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.

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.
