Drouhin 2017

Chambolle-Musigny - Gevrey-Chambertin - Clos des Mouches

Purity and Finesse

Looking for a seductive Chambolle-Musigny?  Have a hankering for an intricate Gevrey-Chambertin?  Joseph Drouhin should be your go-to.  Because the wines of this great family domaine always seem to capture what makes every Burgundian village so distinctive.  One of the reasons that Drouhin expresses terroir so well is because of the light hand used in winemaking: what you find in the glass is what naturally emerges from the fermentation vat.  

All of this helps explain why 2017 is such a lovely vintage for Drouhin. Because the style of the vintage is the style of the domaine: elegant, a touch playful, fresh and above all, pure. The Drouhin 2017s have a gorgeous finesse and loose-knit drinkability already that makes them difficult to keep your hands off.  We recommend the whole range with confidence.
