Red Burgundy Drouhin, Joseph 2017 Gevrey 1er Cru Clos Prieur

2 Case 6 75cl £450
  • Cask sample. Scented again like so many of these Drouhin 2017s, scented with dark-red fruit and a stemmy freshness. Peppery, firm, spicy and generous even in its elegant framework. Long and satisfying and fresh.

1 Case 6 75cl £295
  • Cask sample. 10% whole cluster. 17 months in oak.
    Mid crimson with quite a bit of blue. Pure cherry fruit, dark and red, seasoned with peppery spice and a light but sure dark, minerally note adding freshness. Dry, firm, so elegant in texture, subtle, dark and incredibly long. Lovely even in its infant state. (JH)

White Burgundy Drouhin, Joseph 2018 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc

4 Case 6 75cl £485
  • Jancis Robinson - Total vineyard area is 7 ha and picked over several days. Some barrels declassified to Côte de Beaune this year. Cask sample.
    Intense and lightly spiced nose. Gorgeously open mealy/lees creamy citrus. Fills the mouth with generous and creamy fruit. Moreish and fresh but with the rounded character of the vintage. Tight, precise and yet clothed in lees-rich texture and has power and depth – relatively soft though. (JH)

White Burgundy Drouhin, Joseph 2018 Rully Blanc

10 Case 6 75cl £79
  • The 2018 Rully Village is missing a little intensity on the nose, which offers light malic aromas and a touch of wet granite. The palate is better, with light apricot and white peach notes on the entry and fine acidity. An easygoing Rully with a touch of nettle and spice on the finish.

White Burgundy Drouhin, Joseph 2008 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc

1 Bottle 300cl £425
  • Tasting note: A very subtle reductive character knocks down the expressiveness of the lemon and pretty white flower aromas so I would strongly suggest decanting this for 20 to 30 minutes first. The detailed, pure and lightly mineral-driven flavors possess really lovely balance and fine length. If there is a nit it is that this doesn't possess the complexity of the best 1ers here though the track record of this wine is such that I wouldn't bet against it developing materially more complexity in the bottle.

Red Burgundy Drouhin, Joseph 2012 Lavaux Saint Jacques

1 Case 6 75cl £450£420
  • Tasting note: This is really quite aromatically pretty with its fresh and cool aromas of red and black pinot fruit, earth, game and wet stone nuances. The sense of minerality continues onto the intense, delineated and energetic flavors that display noticeable wood toast on the lingering, dusty and mildly austere finish. This is firmly structured yet balanced and should reward longer-term cellaring if desired as this could be approached young too.

    Outstanding
    Producer note: I met this time with enologist and winemaker Jérôme Faure-Brac as well as Véronique Drouhin who collectively noted that the 2015 growing season "wasn't nearly as difficult as the prior seasons and particularly so with our parcels in the Côte de Beaune. You had to be really careful pruning the vines as the accumulated effects from three consecutive years of hail in the Côte de Beaune had made many of them quite fragile. We also had significantly different yields as they were normal in the Côte de Nuits but quite low in the Côte de Beaune. One of the really nice things about the vintage is how clean the fruit was and given that the harvest weather was so clement we could basically pick each parcel when we felt it was ready, a luxury that isn't always available. We were also super-vigilant about the pressing as we absolutely wanted to avoid the higher pHs that typically result from using the press juice. As such we vinified it separately and then, depending on the characteristics of the press wine, we incorporated it or, if we didn't like it, we sold it. We also did no lees stirring because it was clear from the beginning that the whites were going to be very rich. One of the interesting aspects of this vintage is how much the wines have changed over time as initially they seemed almost heavy and a bit flat at first but as the élevage progressed, they tightened up and actually became fresher and more focused. At that point we said that there was nothing further to be gained from keeping the wines in cask so we bottled the entire range between December 2016 and February 2017." I found the quality of the Drouhin 2015 whites to be generally better than what I found on balance elsewhere. (Dreyfus, Ashby & Co., www.dreyfusashby.com, NY, USA; Pol Roger Ltd., www.polroger.co.uk, UK).
    Tasting note: Here the nose is quite firmly reduced so be sure to decant it if you're yearning to try a bottle upon release. On the plus side there is a really lovely texture to the elegant and vibrant medium weight flavors that possess very fine complexity on the highly persistent finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth.

    The 2012 Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Proces has a wonderful, energetic yet sophisticated bouquet with vibrant red and black fruit married harmoniously with the oak. The palate is very smooth on the entry with supple, lithe tannins that caress the mouth. The acidity is well-judged with tart, dark cherry fruit interlaced with hints of soy, while the finish is focused and long. This Nuits Saint Georges has great potential.

    210, The Wine Advocate

    The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Santenots is pointed on the nose, the fruit veering toward black rather than red in hue, with blackcurrant and wilted violet petals emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry: notes of black cherries, raspberry and soy that surface toward the composed and harmonious finish. Perhaps not a long-term Santenots like other 2012s that I have encountered, nevertheless this is a finely crafted wine destined to dish out pleasure.

    Tasting note: This is turning out better than I foresaw as my original review (see herein) noted some finishing dryness but that was not the case here. A still exceptionally fresh and very primary if highly perfumed nose is composed of spicy red berry fruit aromas that are at once layered and pure. There is both excellent richness and volume to the naturally sweet, detailed and intensely mineral-infused medium-full flavors that exude a subtle classiness on the powerful and focused finale. If there is a nit it's that the complexity that this normally displays isn't present, or at least not yet. That said I underscore that this is in magnum and thus the '06 Musigny is still a decade plus away from its apogee. In sum this is classy stuff that is very definitely still on the way up so patience required and particularly so in the larger format bottling.

White Burgundy Drouhin, Joseph 2017 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc

6 Case 6 75cl £475
  • The 2017 Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc 1er Cru was picked September 1–6 in six different passes through the vineyard. It has quite a strict, conservative bouquet of vibrant citrus fruit infused with touches of linden and orange pith. The palate is quite assertive on the entry, conveying good weight. Like many white 2017s, it is lightly spiced, though this cuvée shows more marine influences and a tang of marmalade toward the persistent, intense finish. Very fine.
