Joseph Drouhin, a powerhouse in Beaune that started as a negotiant in 1880, now owns ~60 hectares of vineyard in Bourgogne including some of the most renowned around the globe - Beaune Clos des Mouches, Chambertin, Clos de Beze, Echezeaux, Musigny, etc. Making all its wines in a perfectionist manner, Joseph Drouhin is a reliable name to follow for both reds and whites. The house style captures the purity of fruits with shorter aging period in oak and earlier bottling to preserve the charming fruitiness and reflect the terroir in which the grapes were from. It is one of the most reliable names to follow and we ensure you this will not disappoint! We have spotted an opportunity of Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot 2016 which scored the same as legendary producer Domaine Leroy by Burghound’s Allen Meadows who knows his Burgundy, and we can offer this at Best Price in the World#. Both received a stunning 95pts but Joseph Drouhin's is at a fraction of price at only HK$1,600 per bottle which clearly shows that the Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot 2016 offers fantastic value-for-money. Domaine Leroy Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2016 – 95pts Allen Meadows (No listing on Wine-searcher; 2015 is listed on Wine-Searcher at an average of HK$51,010 per bottle)
Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2016 HK$1,600 per bottle, Best Price in the World# Only 18 bottles available 95pts Allen Meadows “Don’t Miss!” Drouhin owns .91 ha in two parcels that are rarely blended as the lower portion is typically sold A somber and highly reserved nose only reluctantly offers up notes of plum, violet and freshly turned earth. There is exceptionally good richness to the big-bodied and muscular flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract that serves to buffer the markedly firm tannins on the powerful, youthfully austere and hugely long finish. This is quite simply terrific but note well that it would be pointless to buy this without the intention to allow it at least 10 years of cellar time. Subject to final confirmation. ETA end of April. Delivery is free-of-charge for single purchases above HK$3,000 (or accumulated amount at time of delivery); otherwise a standard delivery fee of HK$80 applies.
