Joseph Drouhin Corton-Charlemagne 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Chardonnay: Allen Meadows, Burghound 92 "An expressive and highly complex nose of pain grill�, green fruit, dried rose petal and anise hints leads to rich, full and impressively intense full-bodied flavors that possess plenty of muscle as well as excellent dry extract that really coats the mouth on the long and at this point, decidedly serious finish. This is very Corton-Charlemagne in character and one that should repay handsomely mid-term cellaring."

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.
