Joseph Drouhin continues their upward trajectory with their 2019s – mineral and textural whites and compelling reds. Of the Drouhin 2019s, Wine Advocate wrote that 'the 2019 vintage has turned out beautifully at this address, delivering wines of immense charm', with Allen Meadows from Burghound concluded his review of their wines with high praise: 'as the scores and commentaries confirm, I found much to like in the Drouhin portfolio and many of them are worth searching out.'
After the generous volumes of 2018 followed three vintages with smaller crops, 2021 is expected to be the smallest in decades.
The whites are 'textural and sumptuos' as per William Kelley from the Wine Advocate with their famous 2019 Clos des Mouches Blanc from Beaune scoring 95 points and listed in the Top 6 of Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Chardonnays For Your Cellar in 2021.
For Wine Advocate 'it's the perfumed, vibrant and enveloping reds that really steal the show this year'. They are generous, pure-fruited and dense but remarkably delineated. 'To my palate, of all the region's important houses, Drouhin's style places the greatest premium on aromatic range and structural finesse; and the 2019 reds compellingly exemplify those aesthetic priorities,' writes William Kelley from the Wine Advocate.
