Joseph Drouhin Gevrey Chambertin 2020

2 units available online.
Product description

This vintage was marked by a concentration of juice in the berries just before the harvest. The wine shows a very nice intense ruby color. The nose is complex and very expressive of red fruits and black fruits but above all the expressions of the terroirs are already noticeable.

93 Points - James Suckling

Quite a fragrant wine for this appellation, which majors in earthy power. Bold sour-cherry and blackberry fruit on the rather generous palate, a well crafted, solid base of tannins underling all the fruit. The two sides of the wine neatly interwoven on the positively firm finish.

92 Points - Decanter

There are abundant blueberry and blackberry aromas, with a very fine savoury element and great finesse. The texture is structured and firm, but not heavy, and the wine lingers gently on the palate. This lovely example of village-level Gevrey is made with purchased fruit, including some classed in premier cru (about one-third).
