Musigny Joseph Drouhin 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

96 Points, Burghound: "A broad-ranging and more expressive nose consists of a wonderful range of spice elements together with notes of black tea, earth and floral hints. There is strikingly good intensity and real power to the overtly muscular big-bodied flavors that ooze a fine dry extract that imparts a suave, even velvety mouth feel to the robust finale that also delivers superb persistence. As the best examples of Musigny always are, this delivers that inimitable combination of power and finesse and in doing so deserves the high compliment of being a 'wow' wine." 04/16 94-97 Points, John Gilman: ":Like the Grands Echézeaux, the 2014 Drouhin Musigny had been bottled in mid-August and was still grumpy from the mise. The wine was quite compact on the palate after the bottling, but I am sure this is just a normal stage and the wine should bounce back nicely with a bit more distance out from the bottling. Today, the nose is the more expressive element of the wine, offering up a very refined constellation of red and black cherries, red plums, cocoa, gamebird, mustard seed, woodsmoke, a gorgeous base of soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, tangy and quite soil-driven, with a fine core, ripe tannins and a long, promising finish. This should prove to be very suave and very, very elegant when it is ready, but it was not particularly happy about being opened up in mid-November! 2025-2075+."12/15

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less
