  • THE BRIEF
  • Founded in Burgundy in 1880, Maison Drouhin has been assembled over the years parcel by parcel, and now comprises 73 ha of vineyards in the Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune, Cote Chalonnaise and Chablis.

    The site is at the heart of Côte de Nuits, between Morey-Saint-Denis and Vougeot. The name of the village Chambolle is probably derived from the Celtic 'cambola,' - an area already reputed for its vineyards in Gallo-Roman times and cultivated by the monks in the Middle Ages. Joseph Drouhin owns several parcels in this appellation.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Harvesting was done by hand, in small open crates in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit. After sorting, the grapes were crushed and the must racked to temperature-controlled fermenting vessels. Maceration and vinification over a period of 2-3 weeks, with spontaneous ferment using indigenous yeasts. A combination of punching down and pump over were used during fermentation. After ferment, the wine was pressed and racked to French oak barrels (20% new) for 14-18 months maturation.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Fine lace and silk are the words most often associated with this wine. Bright, intense colour and complex aromas evoking violet, black cherry and damp earth. Depending on the vintage, there are also notes of truffle and game. Refined tannins coat the palate. Good balance between texture and acidity. Long aftertaste, with notes of cherry and candied fruit.

    NEAL MARTIN - WINE ADVOCATE


    The 2014 Chambolle Musigny Villages felt a little raw on the nose when I tasted it, did not quite have the detail of the 2014 Morey-Saint-Denis. The palate is nicely defined on the entry, quite saline in the mouth with bitter cherry and fresh strawberry, a tang of spice towards the back palate and a modest, quite refined finish.'

    Mid to light crimson. Already showing some complexity in the aroma here – perfumed with red fruit and also a hint of dark fruit and spice. Fine, dry texture, fragrant on the palate too, with the tannins pulling everything in to a neat finish.' 16.5 / 20 Points
