Maison Joseph Drouhin Nuits St. Georges 'Les Procès' Premier Cru 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The nose is deep and shows lovely purity, but was still a bit unsettled from the recent racking, offering up scents of pear, apple, lemon peel, chalky soil tones, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, ripe and wonderfully complex, with bright acids, fine focus and very good length and grip on the refined finish. This will be excellent- no doubt about that!...92" JG 1/12 "One of the more unusual wines in the lineup, the 2010 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres presents an intriguing, at times exotic, array of juicy yellow fruit, lychee and flowers. The Folatieres takes on tropical notes as the wine’s large-scaled, voluptuous personality begins to emerge. There is a slight hint of botrytis-like sweetness that adds considerable character and personality. This is a decidedly lush style that works beautifully...91" WA 8/12 "Lovely subtle perfume of white flowers, noble herbs and white pepper. Juicy and precise on the palate; offers less volume than the Clos des Mouches but superb floral lift to its intense citrus flavors. Finishes stylish and very long. A very stylish Folatieres....93" IWC 09/12

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.
