Grape variety:  Pinot Noir

Producer: Maison Joseph Drouhin

Alcohol content: 13%

Origin: Burgundy, France

Notes: A modern style, in the sense that this is clean, with new oak setting the boundaries of flavor. Yet this remains true Chambolle in its fragrance and elegance. The volume on the floral scents is turned up high, as is the bright, wild tension in the wine. And even with the oak, the wine and its fraises des bois flavor remain transparent, a cool, juicy scrim that has some vibrancy and vibration to it. Hold onto this for ten years or more

Critical acclaim

90 points Wine Enthusiast

*Editors' Choice* Finely perfumed, a wine that has some elegant structure, sweet red-berry fruits and a light acidity. The texture is gentle, soft and rounded, ready to drink now.

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Drouhin's  Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru is redolent of red licorice, red raspberry, cherry, lily, and nutmeg. Its alluring aromas presage its sweetly-ripe, polished palate, and it finishes with good length, although it loses just a bit of its fruit purity and smoothness at that point. I would plan to enjoy this over the next 3-5 years.

Food Pairing: Beef Tenderloin with Ancho and Fennel seeds, Chicken breast, Grilled steak
