Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Joseph Drouhin, Vosne Romanée, Les Petits Monts, 1er Cru, 2012

A small cuvée in the most bumper of years, in 2012 just three barrels of this were made. Deep bright crunchy fruit notes of small concentrated berries, plum and cherry, tense and with a faintly austere edge that makes it incredibly moreish. Richer hints of griotte add a shade of roundness to the wine but it remains high-toned, taut and juicy. Superb.

Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

(vinified with 25% whole clusters): Medium red. Sexy nose combines raspberry, truffle, crushed stone and smoky minerality. Supple, silky and fine-grained, offering a showy combination of fresh raspberry, mineral and earth qualities. This very dense Petits Monts finishes with suave, fully buffered tannins and terrific subtle length. A beauty in the making, but give it time.

Joseph Drouhin

Joseph Drouhin are a family own Domaines and Negociant who command the greatest respect of all the big Burgundy houses. Their knowledge of the land combined with their attention to details in the vineyards as well as their gentle wine making style results in very fine Burgundy that reflect its origin. Little use of new oak, gentle extraction and whole bunch fermentation according to the year or the cuvee are whole part of their belief that good burgundy can't be made by firm hand of the winemaker. The crown jewels in the Drouhin portfolio are without doubt the Domaine Marquis de Laguiche, which has the largest percentage of land in Le Montrachet (30%) of all the owners, and the Domaine Drouhin-owned Clos des Mouches. Drouhin have had exclusive control over the former estate, from cultivation to distribution, since 1947, while Clos des Mouches is one of those rare breeds in Burgundy, a monopole. Originally planted with Pinot Noir, almost half the vineyard was replanted with Chardonnay in 1921 by Maurice Drouhin.
