Joseph Drouhin Cote de Beaune Villages 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is also quite earthy but notably more complex and more serious with dark berry fruit aromas preceding rich, voluminous and vibrant middle weight flavors that are delicious yet the finish carries just a hint of bitterness that I would liken to the taste of a cherry pit. We'll see if it dissipates in time as it is quite subtle...86-88" BH 04/10 "This is the kind of simple wine Drouhin does remarkably well. It's clean, light and delicate, with floral scents of rose petal and jasmine running from the initial aroma straight through the finish. The tart acidity keeps it focused down the center of the palate, the fine, earthy tannin adding to its mouthwatering balance. A lovely red for tea-smoked duck...91" Wine and Spirits 10/10

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.
