Nuits St Georges les Proces Joseph Drouhin 91 Jg Premier 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The wine offers up a very classy aromatic mélange of black cherries, dark berries, a touch of young Nuits medicinal overtones, espresso, lovely, complex soil tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and intensely flavored, with a rock solid core of fruit, excellent transparency, fine focus and excellent balance on the long, ripely tannic and primary finish...91+" JG 1/12 "Like the Gevrey, this too is really very pretty with cool and relatively refined aromas of cassis, violet and earth that gives way to solidly complex, rich, velvety and seductively-textured flavors that are shaped by firm and moderately rustic tannins that possess excellent phenolic ripeness. This solidly structured effort possesses a dusty and mouth coating palate impression that should age extremely well if desired...89-92" BH 4/12 "The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Les Proces (from tank) is a fat, juicy wine endowed with terrific depth and plumpness in its fruit. The structure of Nuits comes through on the powerful finish, but ultimately this remains a fairly generous 2010 at this young stage..." WA 02/12

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.
