Joseph Drouhin Corton-Bressandes Grand Cru 2017

Burgundy,Cote de Beaune
WA93, BH92
Pinot Noir

Derived mostly from Renardes this year, the 2017 Corton Grand Cru is a definite success, offering up aromas of cassis, spicy soil, grilled meat and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and incisive, with good depth at the core, fine but firm structuring tannins and a long finish.   WA91~93

Here the nose is not nearly as fresh with its aromas of poached plum, warm earth and game. The nicely rich medium weight flavors possess good size and power with a subtle touch of minerality adding a bit of lift to the youthfully austere and rustic finish. Drink: 2029+ - BH89~92

The Winery

Joseph Drouhin is one of Burgundy's most important wine producers. Founded in Beaune in 1880, the domaine has expanded throughout the 20th Century to include vineyards in Chablis, the Côte de Nuits, the Côte de Beaune and the Côte Chalonnaise, making everything from simple, village-level cuvées to highly priced grand cru and premier cru wines from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The domaine was started by the eponymous Drouhin, who established the company's headquarters in the city of Beaune in the late 19th Century. His son, Maurice, began to acquire vineyards in the early 20th Century, starting with the now-iconic Clos des Mouches vineyard. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s Joseph Drouhin began to expand its land holdings in Chablis and, in 1988, the domaine established a vineyard in Oregon, in the United States.

Domaine Joseph Drouhin makes several grand cru wines in the Côte d'Or and in Chablis, including ones from Musigny, Corton-Charlemagne and Les Clos, as well as the Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet Grand Cru. It also has land in some of the Côte d'Or's most famous premier cru vineyards, including Chambolle-Musigny's Les Amoureuses vineyard and in Beaune's Clos des Mouches.

Joseph Drouhin makes a range of village-level and regional wines. Grapes for these are sourced from growers in the area, as well as from the domaine's own vineyards. - Information from Wine Searcher
