Description

Joseph Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet 2011 is a generous and elegant wine. Light golden color. Intense nose of flower, brioche and candied lemon aromas, evolving towards nuances of grilled hazelnut and spice as the wine matures. On the palate, the wine is straightforward, with a nice texture and finesse. It has a long aftertaste where floral and gingerbread notes dominate. Precise and intense aromas, the bouquets are extremely pleasing: these wines are rich and finely balanced. Indeed these wines are so attractive and with such good fruitiness. Pale yellow-green. Classic Chassagne aromas and flavors of pear, white flowers and mint. Bright and intense, with lively acidity giving cut to the middle palate. Finishes with a hint of salty minerality. Today this is more harmonious than the Puligny villages.

Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Faithfully preserving the individuality of each appellation, the Drouhin firm constantly strives for wines of breed, finesse and elegance.

A balance of tradition and modern techniques characterizes Joseph Drouhin winemaking and vineyard management: on site nursery, plowing, leaf removal, 100% hand harvesting, open fermenters, fermenting and aging in oak.

As a result of its historic location deep in the heart of Beaune, the quality of its vineyards and the expertise resulting from years of experience in the cultivation of vines and traditional vinification, Maison Joseph Drouhin is uniquely placed to uphold authentic Burgundian style.

Starting with Joseph Drouhin, who founded Maison Joseph Drouhin over a century ago, a great estate has evolved with important holdings in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis and, most recently, Oregon.
