Tasting notes:
'Here too there is a poached plum character to the slightly fresher nose of earth and soft wood nuances. There is good punch and solid density to the muscular medium weight plus flavors that coat the mouth on the lightly stony and youthfully austere finish. This is quite firm and will need extended patience.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 90-93/100

'The 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru was picked between September 8 and 11 from a parcel in the middle of the clos and includes 30% whole clusters. Véronique Drouhin said that because it was a warm season, the blend includes a parcel from the lower part of the Grand Cru that they usually sell off. This has quite a sumptuous bouquet of copious red cherries, kirsch and subtle blueberry aromas, becoming more and more floral in the glass. The lightly spiced palate is medium-bodied on the entry, offering gentle grip, although I feel it does not quite deliver the precision on the finish compared directly with the superlative Clos-de-Bèze.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 90-92/100

About Maison Joseph Drouhin:
In 1880, a 22-year-old Joseph Drouhin settled in Beaune and founded his own wine company. His son Maurice succeeded him and established a domaine for the Drouhin house by buying land in outstanding appellations including the famous Clos des Mouches and Clos de Vougeot. Today, 4th generation Véronique Drouhin continues the family’s prestigious Burgundy legacy. With 73 hectares of biodynamically-farmed vines, Joseph Drouhin is one of Burgundy’s largest estates. With vineyards in close to 90 different appellations, Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs.

‘It’s a real pleasure working with Véronique and her team. Along with their famous wines of Montrachet and Clos des Mouches, every single wine, down to their entry-level cuvées, offer precision, elegance and purity.’ – Roland
