Savigny les Beaune Clos des Godeaux Joseph Drouhin 90 Jg 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Fleshy and laced with cherry, raspberry and spice flavors, this red shows intensity and well-integrated tannins. Balanced, lingering nicely on the finish...90" WS 12/11 "This is a new vineyard acquisition by the Drouhin family. Clos des Godeaux is a beautifully situated lieu à dit just above the great premier cru of Les Lavières, and if the 2009 is any indication of the ultimate quality of this wine this is going to soon be one of the most popular wines in the Drouhin lineup. The very elegant nose on the 2009 is a fine mélange of cherries, orange zest, woodsmoke, a lovely base of soil, fresh herbs and a bit of coffee in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and very refined (particularly for a young Savigny), with affine core of fruit, ripe tannins and lovely focus and balance on the long finish. Classy juice...90+" 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.
