Joseph DROUHIN folks. One of the names synonymous with great Burgundy and plenty of 90+ scores under their belts has rolled into the warehouse just in time for Bastille Day. We are elated to share this village-level Gevrey-Chambertin in easy packing 375mLs with you today. Plus the scores! 92pts James Suckling, 91pts Wine Spectator and a smattering of 90pt scores from Wine Advocate, Burghound and Vinous.

Here are some of the excerpts:

"Spicy, cedary and minty with raspberries and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Structured.” – 92pts, James Suckling

"The rich and reasonably dense medium weight flavors possess a lovely sense of vibrancy, all wrapped in a lightly stony, serious and built-to-age finale.” – 90pts Burghound

“ Delightful.” – 90pts, Vinous

The Drouhin family own about 193 acres in Burgundy, majority of which are Premier and Grand Cru vineyards, making them one of the largest estates in the region. In 2009 their vineyards were officially organically certified after about 20 years of organic practices. 

The nose brings a smile to the face, “Ahh, yes, Gevrey-Chambertin…wonderful.” Cherries, raspberries and bramble waft from the glass with notes of forest floor, spice and cedar. The palate offers tarter fruit with hints of stone, earth and a bit of an umami note on the back palate. Lovely weight with a supple texture and silky tannins.

Burgundy lovers, this is for you! Nearly 30% off retail, and in those picnic-friendly 375mLs making it easy to carry just about anywhere (just don’t forget the corkscrew!). $128 a 4-pack with shipping included. Happy Bastille Day!
