An Offer of 2015 Drouhin Wines

Serious Cru Beaujolais at the price of Beaujolais Villages - one week only
November 7, 2017

 

Last week's Drouhin wines charmed those who were lucky enough to attend.
We were fortunate to have wine critic Michael Apstein. He had tasted the wines from barrel in Burgundy and wrote:

"Though Drouhin’s reds, like many of the other 2015 reds are, by and large, charming and deceptively easy to taste now, the best ones, at the premier and grand cru level, have the requisite structure and balance to develop the alluring flavors for which Burgundy is known over the next decade or two. .... But even many of the reds with a “lesser” pedigree, such as Bourgogne Rouge or those from less well known villages, such as Marsannay or Monthélie, will benefit from a few years of bottle age--if you can keep your corkscrew away from them."

(Michael's complete column can be found here: http://www.winereviewonline.com/Apstein_on_Twenty_Fifteen_Red_Burgs.cfm)

I agree. Although I found of the better wines to be showing more structure than fruit as is typical of young Drouhin reds, they reminded both Michael and me of the wonderful 1985 vintage, whose wines showed more delicate fruit than power, but are continuing to age wonderfully.

Some takeaways from the tasting:

Many of the affordable wines are delicious now. Especially not to be missed are the Santenay and Chorey les Beaune. You can drink both now and I think they will improve for another five years.

The major village and 1er cru reds were more reserved but poised and impeccable representations of their terroirs. The Beaune Clos des Mouches is magnificent, Most was ordered at the tasting. We have just a few bottles left.

The 2015 whites we tasted are forward and will drink now and in the near term. The Pouilly Vinzelles is a great value. the others showed solid and characteristic, with better concentration at their level, without the flaccidity of many other producers' wines.

The 2014 Fleurie and Brouilly we had at dinner are steals. We got special pricing from Drouhin for this event which we can extend for this week only. They are serious Cru Beaujolais at the price of Beaujolais Villages

We were offered access to some of the reserve Drouhin 2015s for this event. They are in very limited quantities and listed below. Prices subject to prior sale.
