Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin at a Great Price!


2019 Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin AC...$59.99
Regular price....$69.99
SAVE $10!!

Accented by violet blossom, musk and scorched earth, this gloriously red-berried Pinot Noir has quite a complex nose. Matured 14 to 18 months in oak (20% new), it's voluminous and rounded yet penetrates with ripe, pristine blackberry and cassis flavors. The supple, silky wine should approach peak by 2024 and improve through 2035. 
Rated 94/100 Wine Enthusiast

Located in the north of the Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin is world-famous, not only for its superlative Grand Crus, but also for all its other vineyards.

Gevrey is of course the village where the Grand Cru Chambertin vineyard is located. Vines have been cultivated here since 630AD, when a certain Bertin decided to emulate the monks, his neighbours. The wine he made turned out to be spectacular - and the rest is history!

2019 holds the promise of the great Burgundian vintages ending in 9. The great maturity has given ample and silky wines. They are charming and full of delicacy. A great vintage.
