Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny 750ML 2006      
Sku: 50182

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Dec 2009)
The Drouhin 2006 Chambolle-Musigny is based largely on contract fruit, although some estate juice is present, especially in this year of rigorous selection and assemblage. A darkly forest floor, roasted meat, bitter-sweet black fruit, clove, and pepper set of flavors renders this far more somber than I anticipated. Texturally, it is quite refined, with a hint of creaminess. Chalky and saline mineral notes and a fresh fruit skin edge lend invigoration and refreshment to a satisfyingly long finish in which the sense of darkness is subliminated, if not dissipated. There is something of a role reversal with this year’s Gevrey, as the latter is more winsome and less vigorous. This could use a bit of bottle time to explore its potential synergies, but will I suspect be best enjoyed within 3-4 years.
