Joseph Drouhin Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2020

Burgundy,Cote de Beaune
WS96, WA95, BH95

A rich, supple white, with great balance and expression, delivering peach, lemon, mineral and spice flavors allied to a bone-dry, chalky structure that reflects greater austerity on the finish for now. Shows superb harmony and length. Best from 2025 through 2036.   WS96

Aromas of pear, citrus zest, struck match, fresh bread and pastry cream introduce Drouhin's 2020 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (Domaine), a full-bodied, deep and complete wine that's satiny and layered, with lively acids and a chalky finish. - WA93~95

A lightly wooded nose features super-fresh aromas of Granny Smith apples, along with citrus confit, fennel and a hint of spicy exotic tea. There is again excellent volume and richness to the caressing but powerful and muscular larger-scaled flavors that exude a refreshing salinity on the superbly long finish. This could use better depth but that should come if allowed at least a few years of cellaring. Drink: 2028+ - BH92~95

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
