92pts, James Suckling
Spicy, cedary and minty with raspberries and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Smoke and tar at the end. Structured. Drink after 2022.

91pts, Wine Spectator
This red is marked by a laser of cherry and currant flavors, with grace notes of earth, iron and tobacco. The texture is both supple and firm, with a long finish of cherry, earth and spice accents. Best from 2021 through 2033. 600 cases imported.

90pts, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Aromas of sweet grilled meats, spicy cassis, cherries and rich soil tones introduce the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Village, a medium to full-bodied, ample and impressively layered wine that includes some premier cru juice. With good depth and length, it's a decided success at the communal level this year.

90pts, Burghound
A much less expressive and brooding nose grudgingly reveals wild dark berries, earth, forest floor and plenty of sauvage character. 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. This too is a quality villages level effort.

90pts, Vinous
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Village offers good concentration on the nose, delivering plenty of red plum, raspberry and a touch of damson that bursts through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, very fine acidity, silky-smooth texture and gentle grip on the rounded, wild-strawberry-infused finish. Delightful.

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.

THE STORY TO KNOW

Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Faithfully preserving the individuality of each appellation, the Drouhin firm constantly strives for wines of breed, finesse and elegance.

A balance of tradition and modern techniques characterizes Joseph Drouhin winemaking and vineyard management: on site nursery, plowing, leaf removal, 100% hand harvesting, open fermenters, fermenting and aging in oak.

As a result of its historic location deep in the heart of Beaune, the quality of its vineyards and the expertise resulting from years of experience in the cultivation of vines and traditional vinification, Maison Joseph Drouhin is uniquely placed to uphold authentic Burgundian style.

Starting with Joseph Drouhin, who founded Maison Joseph Drouhin over a century ago, a great estate has evolved with important holdings in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis and, most recently, Oregon.

MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN AWARDED ORGANIC CERTIFICATION Estate-grown Grapes of 2009 Vintage and later Now Officially Organic. Twenty years after Philippe Drouhin first began introducing organic practices to the vineyards making up the family company’s domaine (estate), Maison Joseph Drouhin (MJD), has been awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage.

With 78 hectares (193 acres), the Joseph Drouhin Domaine is one of the largest estates in the region. It owns vineyards in all of Burgundy: Chablis (39 hectares - 96 acres), Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, (36 hectares - 89 acres), Côte Chalonnaise (3 hectares - 8 acres). It is comprised of a majority of Premier and Grand Crus, planted with the two Burgundian grape varietals, pinot noir and chardonnay.
