Puligny Montrachet les Folatieres Joseph Drouhin 91 Jg 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pale color. Very ripe nose hints at ginger and banana. Sappy and sweet but a bit exotic following the village wines. The fruit flavor is suppressed by SO2 today, leaving a saline note to dominate. Finishes with good but not outstanding length and a hint of warmth...88-90" IWC 09/10 "... deep and classy nose offers up a classic mélange of apples, white peaches, hard limestone, a touch of orange, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nicely soil-driven, with fine acids, lovely focus and excellent length and grip on the bouncy and youthful finish. A lovely bottle that could use a few years in the cellar to fully blossom...92" JG 11/10

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.
