Vosne Romanee les Petits Monts Joseph Drouhin 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good medium red. Red and black fruits lifted by a note of violet on the nose; I might have picked this as coming from Chambolle except for its smoky minerality. Then sweet but tight on the palate, with dark flavors of cassis, black raspberry and pepper complicated by Richebourg-like soil tones of smoke and minerals. This is rather backward and in need of at least three or four years of cellaring....90+" IWC 4/09

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

What the ?!?! Smells like butter at first smell! Crazy! Never smelled that before in a wine. I can't believe it's not butter. This is TOTALLY an artist wine. Crazy vintners! 91/100

    For as simple as this wine is, it's actually fairly interesting. Very dark cherry, leather, herbaceous flavors meet and then turn towards this puckering tartness on the finish where you expect dry tannins. I wish the nose were better; it's way too hot to enjoy, despite being only 12%. It has the sort of imbalance that is charming and almost rustic, but it's definitely not a world class wine.

    Bouchard's 2007 Corton-Charlemagne - the last wine they picked - offers another of those occasions for reflecting on a bit of Burgundian craziness: a grand cru wine presented last in a stellar line-up, yet that costs on-half to one-third that of the other grand cru bottlings that preceded it. A striking and intensely pungent aroma of holly berry, fresh ginger, and lime zest leads to a vivacious, silken-textured, chalky, saline, crustacean palate. For all of this wine's sheer intensity and palpable sense of underlying extract, it shares lift, buoyancy, and overall elegance with its Chevalier-Montrachet counterparts and preserves the energy and primary, juicy refreshment that goes with its vintage. The diversity and persistence of mineral elements here are memorable. It's the hundredth anniversary of this Bouchard parcel (characterized by all-day luminosity), and a happy birthday indeed! Those lucky enough to acquire some of this should anticipate more than a decade of pleasure, but I would estimate that re-visiting the wine in 2-3 years would be rewarding both sensually and in terms of estimating its further evolution. erobertparker.com, Issue 186 Dec 2009, David Schildknecht

    91 Points - Wine and Spirits This wine has the refinement you might hope to find in Vosne-Romanée. It smells like the sun on limestone, when the earth is giving up its humidity. What it doesn&

    A serious, tight and brooding nose though aggressive swirling coaxes intensely floral, pure and elegant notes of very ripe black cherry and currant that merge into broad-shouldered and well-muscled flavors that offer excellent volume and concentration, all wrapped in an explosive and moderately austere finish. This is flat out terrific and blessed with huge amounts of dry extract. This should age extremely well but note that it is a wine for the very patient.

    In his Burgundy book, Robert Parker wrote of the Domaine Jean Grivot, "The wines produced by...Jean Grivot and his son Etienne range from very good to exhilarating. Since 1980, his wines have consistently been among the best made in Burgundy." And this small, 25-acre estate, spread across 15 appellations continues to impress. This is a Grand Cru. Wine Spectator scored it 93 points. "An expression of darker fruit—blackberry, black cherry and black currant—exudes from this seductive red, which has plenty of tannins, both from the grape and oak, so be patient. There's fine length, with sweetness and mineral. Best from 2014 through 2025."

    Big and weighty, the wood very dominant, a wine with considerable potential. It feels important, seriously structured, edging on austere, but promising a much broader character after several years. R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2007 Bouchard, Pere et Fils Corton Charlemagne 750ml

    As it usually does, this offers another level of aromatic complexity with a highly spiced nose trimmed in a subtle touch of wood that does not interfere with the overall transparency of either the nose or the palate as this is pure, classy and refined. Moreover, the tannins are also more refined, which is unusual, and this completely stains the palate on the hugely long finish. A balanced, stylish and beguiling Bèze that is built to age, and improve, for up to two decades. Burghound.com, Issue Apr 1, 2009, Allen Meadows
