2015 Joseph Drouhin
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
This has the easy charm of a ripe vintage at the beginning - very delicious - then builds in expression and has fine acidity on the finish which suggests an interesting development to come. Very pure. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Pale yellow. Very ripe stone fruits plus a hint of lichee on the nose. Less exotic on the palate owing to saline minerality, with the stone fruit flavors displaying slightly elevated alcohol but no lack of energy. Finishes a touch phenolic, with moderate complexity but an intriguing saline character. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 88 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Sep 2017)
Sample. Pleasing and fairly complex honeysuckle nose with a bone-dry palate. A little more relaxed than many. Drinking range: 2018 - 2023Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)
The 2015 Puligny Montrachet Village has a delightful linden and lemon zest bouquet with a squeeze of fresh lime for good measure. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity that imbues this village cru with a touch more brightness than the Meursault, if not the same weight or viscosity. Nevertheless, this is a well-crafted Puligny from Drouhin that should represent good value for money once in bottle.

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.
