Joseph Drouhin Vosne-Romanée les Petits Monts Premiere Cru 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Petits Monts is exceptional. The bouquet is deep, reserved and nicely cool in its aromatic profile of cassis, dark berries, espresso, woodsmoke, complex minerality and a topnote of Vosne spice. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tightly-knit, with a very tangy core of sweet black fruit, fine-grained tannins, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the very transparent finish. The Drouhins always use a fairly high percentage of stems during fermentation, and the Petits Monts still shows a touch of its youthful stemminess at this point in its evolution. Tuck it away for six or seven years and stand back when opening, as there will a fireworks display going off in the glass!...93" JG 04/10

Joseph Drouhin:
DEDICATION TO THE DIVERSITY OF BURGUNDY With close to 90 different appellations, Joseph Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs in all their authenticity and subtle variations. A FAMILY HERITAGE For the last 130 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm, animated by the same passion that inspired the founder of the company.
