Joseph Drouhin Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru 2017Maison Joseph Drouhin
Origin: Burgundy, France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Site: 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. The Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru wines are produced on small vineyards, too small to be harvested and vinified separately. They are put together. The name given to this wine is therefore Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru.
Aged in French oak barrels (20% in new oak) for 14-18 months. Joseph Drouhin insists on total control of the weathering for a period of 3 years, one of the contributing elements to the elegance of the wine.
Beautiful, bright ruby colour. The fruity aromas (black cherry, blackberry) mingle with hints of liquorice. The nose reveals notes of spices and nutmeg evolving towards scents of mushroom. The tannin is present but not too strong. Great aftertaste/
