2018 Joseph Drouhin Côte de Beaune (Previously $55)

SKU #1502142 87-90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark No Tasting Note Given. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here there is a mentholated top note to the slightly riper blend of red and dark currant, earth and soft floral wisps. The energetic though less concentrated middle weight flavors possess solid depth though the much less structured finish is a bit raspy and while not coarse, it would be fair to observe that it's not refined. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

John Gilman

Outer quote mark This is often one of the best values in the Drouhins’ portfolio, as it is almost entirely a blend of younger vine fruit from their premier cru holdings in Beaune. The 2018 Côte de Beaune is another lovely wine, offering up a juicy nose of red and black cherries, smoke, dark chocolate, a nice base of soil and a topnote of vinesmoke. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, sappy and gently tannic this year, with a bit of its youthful whole clusters still showing at the present time, but with good length and grip for fine drinking a short time down the road. (Drink between 2023-2040) Inner quote mark (12/2019)


Outer quote mark The 2018 Côte de Beaune Rouge comes from 13 different parcels from around the appellation and receives a minute amount of whole cluster. It offers punchy blackberry, raspberry and black olive scents on a nose that races from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly rustic tannins, good depth and fine balance. There is a simplicity to this wine, but that is actually its strength. Hints of white pepper appear on the finish. Recommended. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Now in bottle. One of the lighter colours for the vintage (you can take that as a plus point!). The fruit is really elegant firstly on the nose and then with greater density on the palate. Has the required energy from the acidity at the back. Long perfumed finish. Tasted: November 2019."
