2013 Joseph Drouhin Grand Cru (750ml)

Pinot Noir from Musigny, Burgundy, France


The 2013 Musigny Grand Cru was picked on October 8, underwent a 19-day maceration and contains partial whole-cluster fruit. The nose is standoffish at first, but it’s just playing with you. It has superb definition and transparency: wilted violets and blackberry coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, tensile in the mouth, plenty of energy here with a long and beautifully composed finish. This is one of the wines of the vintage - regal and majestic.

95-97 points, eRobertParker.com (Issue # 216 - Dec 2014)

A brooding and reticent nose only grudgingly displays notes of spice, menthol and liqueur-like black cherry aromas. The broad-shouldered flavors are big yet possess a notably more refined mouth feel while conceding nothing in terms of power and punch on the cool, pure and perfectly balanced finish that just seems to go on and on. This is not as big and robust as the Bonnes Mares but it's finer and has that extra dimension of depth and class that a great example of Musigny intrinsically possesses. In short, this is potentially a great wine.

93-96 points, Allen Meadows' Burghound (Apr 2015)

Bright, full red. Deep aromas and flavors of dark fruits, violet, mocha and truffley underbrush. Fat, sweet and rich; full and sharply delineated, combining subtle earthy nuances and captivating floral high notes. Finishes with serious but suave tannins and terrific energy and length. The acidity of the 2013s will slow down their development in bottle, notes Frèdèric Drouhin.
