Joseph Drouhin Griottes-Chambertin Cote de Nuits France Burgundy 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The nose offers up a rather reserved mélange of cassis, black cherries, grilled meat, bitter chocolate, soil and fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and a bit shaken at the present time, with a solid core of fruit and very good length and grip on the finish. This needs a bit more time to snap back into focus after the recent bottling, but I have little worries about its ultimate quality...91-94?" JBG 12/07. "...required especially rigorous selection and gentle extraction... seems to have paid off. A healthy ruddy color is matched by flavors of fresh sour cherry and red raspberry wreathed in narcissus and herbs, and leading to a bright, invigorating finish with undertones of sandalwood, salt, beef marrow, moss, and chalk. This might not be the last word in ripeness or be especially texturally rich, but it is full of energy and grand cru in its sheer, penetrating persistence...92" WA 12/09

Das Kredenzen eines Grand Cru von JOSEPH DROUHIN stellt einen ganz besonderen Moment dar und ist immer ein Erlebnis. Der Rebberg der Einzellage GRIOTTE-CHAMBERTIN macht nicht einmal 3 ha aus, aber die Weine, die daraus entstehen, begründen einen eigenen Mythos. Die Fruchtaromatik - Griotten, wie könnte es anders sein - im Bouquet ist überwältigend, verleitet zum Träumen und verheisst vieles. Es ist die Harmonie, die Finesse und die Einheit, die diesem grossen Gewächs die Dimension verleiht, die man sich wünscht. Das Finale wiederspiegelt dies aufs Eindrücklichste.

LaForet Pinot Noir has a brilliant ruby-garnet color. The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant, and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink - fresh and fruity berry flavors with light and elegant tannins.
