Joseph Drouhin is one of the biggest names in Beaune and owns vineyards all over Burgundy including Chablis, and most are either Premier or Grand Crus. They produce both reds and whites, in which their 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. Specifically on whites, they are pure, offering complete cleanliness in the palate.
To experience the greatness of Drouhin's range of productions, we have selected a few of Joseph Drouhin's wines from the 2017 vintage and put them together into a lovely parcel of 10, with an emphasis on whites given that 2017 was an exciting vintage for chardonnay. The parcel includes wines that received extraordinary scores from Vinous' Neal Martin - Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet Grand Cru (94-95pts) and Chambolle-Musigny Amoureuses 1er Cru (94-96pts). All bottles are priced well-below market prices# and are directly shipped from Burgundy to Hong Kong so do not miss the chance to secure a parcel to enjoy these beauties which offer superb value for money. Only 12 parcels available, be quick to let us know if you are interested -
JOSEPH DROUHIN 2017 PARCEL OF 10 BOTTLES: HK$12,410 PER PARCEL (Market Price: HK$15,551#), consisting of the following bottles:
1x Marquis de Laguiche Montrachet Grand Cru 2017
Single Price: HK$4,250 per bottle
Market Price: HK$4,995 per bottle#
94-95pts Neal Martin
The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru, farmed on behalf of the Laguiche family since 1947, was picked September 5–8 in three different passes through three parcels. It is matured in a modest 30% new oak. It has a very crisp bouquet of crushed wet limestone, Granny Smith apples, shaved almond and light orange pith notes. The lightly spiced palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and some lime and clementine notes. It is very persistent in the mouth, showing impressive depth and tension toward the citric finish.
1x Chambolle-Musigny Amoureuses 1er Cru 2017
Single Price: HK$2,800 per bottle
Market Price: HK$4,016 per bottle#
94-96pts Neal Martin
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru was picked on September 8 and includes 40% whole cluster fruit. What I love about this Amoureuses is that it could not come from anywhere except this prestigious vineyard. The refined floral bouquet is sensual and nicely defined. The harmonious, feminine palate is beautifully balanced, displaying filigreed tannin and a precise, transparent finish that is intellectual as well as seductive. This is a beautifully crafted wine and vies with the Clos-de-Bèze as one of Drouhin’s finest 2017s
4x Meursault Genevrieres 1er Cru 2017
Single Price: HK$690 per bottle
Market Price: HK$848 per bottle#
91-93pts Neal Martin
The 2017 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru is a relatively new offering from Drouhin. The vineyard includes vines of differing ages, so it was picked over three different days. In fact, it was the first white to be picked, starting on August 30 and finishing on September 6. It has a delightful bouquet of orange blossom, tangerine and light lemon peel aromas. The palate is well balanced with a citrus-driven entry that then segues into a taut, crisp, lightly spiced midpalate, with nutmeg and walnut emerging toward the finish.
4x Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne 1er Cru 2017
Single Price: HK$650 per bottle
Market Price: HK$787 per bottle#
91pts Neal Martin
The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Garenne 1er Cru, which was taken from cask, has a delightful array of scents: orange blossom, hints of apricot and crushed stone, turning quite floral with continued aeration. The palate is very well balanced, displaying walnut and smoke on the entry, and quite flinty in style, maybe just lacking the complexity of the Meursault Charmes toward the finish.
