Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2006

BH:92

  • Why you should try: mature, Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru from a highly regarded winemaker
  • Background: Dated back to the 18th century, Joseph Drouhin remains as one of the largest and most respectable winemaker / negociant in Burgundy with >73 hectares of vineyards throughout the area. Wine is aged in French oak for 14-18 months, with only 20% new oak used. They place particularly attention to the wood of the barrel; the wood needs to go through 3 years of weathering, thus contributing to the elegance of the wine
  • Blend: 100% Pinot Noir

Burghound: 92
"As I have observed several times, Clos de Vougeot was particularly successful in 2006 and this example is in perfect keeping with that general tendency with an expressive, spicy and unusually open nose that offers up aromas of earth, red and dark berry fruit and hints of the sauvage that continue onto the ripe, intense and youthfully austere flavors that culminate with good power and length. Despite the obvious muscle, this is essentially a Clos de Vougeot of finesse as the tannins are really quite fine." (Apr 2008)
