Description

A silky and delicate Gevrey-Chambertin wine

The estate

For four generations, Domaine Joseph Drouhin has been a must-know reference among fine Burgundy wines. Founded in 1880 by Joseph Drouhin, who was 22 years old at the time, the estate has expanded over the years and has reached its current size of 80 hectares. The vines spread over renowned appellations (Beaune, Bonnes-Mares, Chassagne-Montrachet, Clos Vougeot, Corton-Charlemagne, Grands-Echezeaux, Pouilly-Fuissé, etc.).

Since 1957, this family of precursors has advocated respect for the terroir and the environment both regarding the vineyard management and the production of their fine wines.

The red and white wines of Domaine Joseph Drouhin authentically express the mosaic and richness of the Burgundian terroirs. They are renowned for their elegance, their intense fruity aromas and their gourmet complexity.

The vineyard

This 2019 Joseph Drouhin "Clos Prieur" is a Gevrey-Chambertin 1er cru wine made from the eponymous vineyard, which was once owned by the monks of the Abbey of Cluny. The "Clos Prieur" is situated on marl soils to the south of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin.

Vinification and ageing

Harvested and sorted by hand, the grapes undergo maceration and vinification for a total of 2 to 3 weeks. Only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation. The extraction process is carried out with great care in order to give the wine its colour, structure, finesse and distinctiveness. The wine is aged for 14 to 18 months in French oak barrels (20% of which are new), dried for more than 3 years to contribute to the finesse of the wines.

The blend

Pinot Noir (100%).
