Joseph Drouhin Corton Charlemagne 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2015 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from the lieu-dits of "Les Longuettes" and I tasted from barrel the cuvée owned by the Drouhin family (there is an alternative négoçiant bottling, albeit from another sector). It has a pretty, fragrant bouquet with hints of grilled walnut and smoke. The palate is well balanced, quite generous for a Corton-Charlemagne, rounded in the mouth with subtle tropical notes, mango and guava, towards the finish. This is a superb Corton-Charlemagne from team Drouhin." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate *(93-95 Points)*

Joseph Drouhin:

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.

A restrained cool and airy nose offers up notes of green apple floral and wet stone scents. There is plenty of size weight and intensity to the beautifully well-detailed flavors that display an overt muscularity before terminating in a balanced long and impressively powerful finish that delivers outstanding length. A classic example. 2019+ Burghound.

2011 Corton-Charlemagne (from Les Languettes) is wonderfully salty briny and energetic. Lemon pastry spice and slate notes develop in the glass followed by a wealth of floral notes that give the wine its lift and inner sweetness. It will be interesting to see the direction the 2011 takes over the coming years. Today the 2011 is all about polish and refinement. There is a lot to look forward to here. 93+ Antonio Galloni.

Im Bouquet entfaltet sich eine betörende Vielfalt an Aromen, die in einer kompakten Einheit verschmolzen sind: exotische Früchte, Honig, mineralische Noten sowie grünliche Komponenten, die uns an Avocado, frisch gesammelte Baumnüsse und Tee erinnern. In der Nase bietet dieser Wein sehr viel, aber erst im Gaumen und im nicht enden wollenden Abgang zeigt sich die Klasse, die Struktur. Sie manifestiert sich in der Vielfalt, der Dichte, der Tiefgründigkeit und in der exzellenten Nachhaltigkeit.

From Barrel:Discreet if not invisible wood highlights a ripe white flower and green fruit nose nuanced by spice and wet stone hints where the latter elements are also reflected by the intensely soil-driven flavors brimming with both salinity and mine...

Drouhin's 2006 Corton-Charlemagne is from their own holdings in the south-facing Les Languettes, high above Aloxe-Corton at the bend in the grand cru's horseshoe. Tangerine, lime, flowers, and smoky, toasty notes from barrel on the nose lead to a fin... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
