  • 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?


    Deep red colour. Intense nose of red and black fruits. The mouth is fleshy with some intensity and offers a long aftertaste. This prestigious wines will enjoy a very long ageing potential.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • For the last 130 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm, animated by the same passion that inspired the founder of the company. With close to 90 different appellations, Joseph Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs in all their authenticity and subtle variations. The style of Joseph Drouhin is an alliance between character, balance and harmony. Wines meant to be drunk young are fresh and subtle; wines meant for keeping acquire with age a luscious complexity.

    NEAL MARTIN - WINE ADVOCATE


    The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Village has an attractive bouquet with black plum, undergrowth and wilted violet scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, smooth and harmonious, not enormous weight but nicely controlled and sensual on the finish. It gives you just about all you seek in a village cru level Chambolle.'

    JANCIS ROBINSON MW


    Sample. Very pure nose and finely etched fruit. Really rather seductive. Nicely balanced ripe fruit but with purity and freshness.' 16.5 / 20 Points
