2009 Joseph Drouhin Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

SKU #1073290 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Don't Miss!* A highly expressive nose offers up very ripe but not roasted aromas of plum, cassis, earth, underbrush and a hint of the sauvage. The attractively rich, detailed and mouth coating flavors are blessed with seemingly endless reserves of sap that completely buffer the otherwise very firm tannins on the long finish. This is really quite stylish and like several wines in the range, will drink well young if desired but this has the material to age for years. Drink 2024+... When I brought up the always tricky question about what vintage might resemble 2009, Robert nominated 1985. When I noted that some had invoked 1959, he responded "I don't think the comparison with 1959 is apt because while there are certain similarities, 1959 was much richer in sugar and thus the alcohols were higher. Inner quote mark (5/2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Black cherry, herb and spice aromas and flavors show purity in this focused, intense red. This is elegant and balanced, finishing with a hint of licorice. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Charmes-Chambertin is a big, full-bodied wine loaded with warm, radiant fruit. This is an engaging, immediate style best suited to near and mid-term drinking. Charmes is one of the more challenged sites in 2009. Drouhin's Charmes is made from purchased fruit. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Moderately saturated medium red. Raspberry, flowers and iron on the nose. Suave on entry, then charming, delineated and sweet, with harmonious acidity carrying the finish. Not technically high in acidity but boasts good energy. Finishes with very good but not outstanding length. (ST) Inner quote mark (2/2011)
