2012 Joseph Drouhin
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Rocky, stony fruit with a lovely little sweetness and a nice purity and poise. Very good example. L&S (Dec 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Light yellow. Reticent nose hints at yellow peach. Boasts lovely fullness in the style of the vintage but also better acidity and more precision than the Meursault. Very nicely concentrated village wine; linear and backward but already conveying a lot of personality. Finishes with lovely length. Rating: 90 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Sep 2014)

Despite the size of their vineyard holding, not all of Drouhin's wines come from their own domaine, but most of the other wines do come from long-term contracts, such as exists with the Marquis de Laguiche wines. In all but name these wines are 'Domaine' wines, and the vineyards are cared for and the wines vinified with exactly the same care.
