Articles About Joseph Drouhin
2002 Domaine Drouhin Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er
13.0% alc.. This vineyard is one of a handful that many experts deem worth of grand cru status (and is priced accordingly). It is situated just below Musigny and is considered the “younger brother to Musigny.” · The aromatics are quite sensual featuring violets, roses, and cassis. The predominately red fruit flavors are buttressed by brisk acidity. Clean, crisp and thoroughly satisfying, this is truly a complete wine deserving of great admiration.
