No 1 Red Burgundy Recommendation of the Week. "The Drouhins need no introduction for there are fewer more famous Burgundian mes. This elegant wine is blessed with pure, red berry nuances of some depth and concentration. Its well structured with soft tannins and a hint of creamy oak on the long finish." www.decanter.com (Global), February 2009
Winery Tasting Notes
One of the most subtle wines in all of Burgundy! The colour may vary from cherry to ruby. A large palette of seductive aromas which can evolve, one minute to the next, from raspberry to kirsch. Later, the nose may display some truffle, mushroom or woody notes and, in some years, musky, even animal nuances. The aromas are always restrained and elegant. On the palate, a wonderful silky sensation, with very refined tannins. Intensity, velvety texture and lively freshness: this well-named wine is a masterpiece of harmony. The aftertaste is very delicate and leaves an impression of supreme refinement".
