Joseph Drouhin Chablis les Clos Grand Cru 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A tantalizing mix of lemon, oyster shell, white peach and vanilla flavors, but underneath it all there's a mineral component. Tightens up on the finish, so give this a few years to integrate and blossom.

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.

Pale yellow straw in color with slight silver hues at the rim. Fresh aromas of baked brie green apple lemon curd and tangerine stand out against a frame of lavender and pulverized sea shells. The mouthwateringly high acidity comes in on the attack and stays throughout. Flavors of key lime pie red apple skin and quince open the mid palate and lead to slightly hot finish. Give this a few years to come together and enjoy the following 4-6 years. Jeff Loo.
