Drouhin’s 2010 Corton-Charlemagne is impeccably refined from start to finish. Citrus, white flowers and mint all take shape in the glass. This finely sculpted, nuanced, utterly brilliant wine possesses fabulous intensity and pointedness through to the vibrant, polished finish. I love the pure unbridled energy here. This is an exceptional showing from Drouhin. Readers should note that I tasted the domaine bottling that is sold in the US. Drouhin also makes a maison Corton-Charlemagne that is sold elsewhere, but that I did not taste. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. ||This is a striking set of wines from Drouhin. Veronique Drouhin describes 2010 as a year with cool temperatures in July and August, but much better weather in September. As is the case throughout the region, I found the Pulignys especially ripe and exotic. I also tasted a range of the 2011s. Drouhin told me she thought the wines would need a little extra time in barrel to give them more body and volume. eRobertParker.com.August, 2012

Founded 130 years ago and still family owned, Joseph Drouhin is one of the most important domaines in Burgundy. With vineyards covering close to 90 different appellations, Drouhin is passionate about using a biodynamic approach to produce top quality terroir-driven wines. From the 2009 vintage onward, their entire Burgundy holdings have the ECOCERT organic certification.The Drouhins favour a light-touch with their winemaking, letting the fruit do the talking. Their wines are bottled earlier than most producers in the region in keeping with their desire for fruit forward wines.
