Joseph Drouhin Corton Charlemagne Gc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Saline and violet notes on the nose. Dense sweet and very ripe with lovely focus and grip to the peach and pear flavors. Today this is considerably more pliant than Drouhin's Meursault Perrieres. A big wine with a long sweet finish that shows an enticing stony aspect.92ST.

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.

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.
