Joseph Drouhin Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from the estate’s own vines on the east-facing slopes toward the bottom of Les Languettes. It has an elegant bouquet with touches of beeswax, honeycomb and spice that are crisp and well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a smudge of lemongrass on the entry, a crisp line of acidity with fine tension on the finish. This is a respectable Corton-Charlemagne that just needs to come out of its shell...92" WA 08/13

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.

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.

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.
