Maison Joseph Drouhin

Abour Maison Joseph Drouhin

The eponymous Joseph Drouhin founded the négociant company, which bears his name in 1880, having spent much of his early life in Yonne. His son Maurice took over in 1918, buying the first vineyards, including the famous Clos des Mouches, which we are delighted to offer below. An arduous process of expansion thanks to the nature of Burgundy’s patchwork of owners, Maurice was finally able to carve out quite the empire for his family, which endures to this day.

A titanic character in Beaune, Maurice both sat on the INAO committee and acted as deputy administrator of the Hospices de Beaune throughout the turbulent World War II. At the height of his powers, Drouhin even had exclusive distribution rights to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. However, he was unable to purchase a portion of the company, which subsequently went to Leroy. 

His successor was his nephew Robert Jeausset-Drouhin, who took charge in 1957. Still maintaining a watchful eye over proceedings, Robert has ceded main control to his children (and fourth generation) Frédéric, Laurent, Philippe and Véronique. Philippe Drouhin manages the vineyards biodynamically, and as of 2009, their entire range has the ECOCERT organic certification.

Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches 2017 (6x75cl)

Wine Spectator (94)

A rich red, with a velvety texture showing off floral, cherry, strawberry, licorice and mineral flavors. Beautifully balanced and firmly structured, this lingers with fresh cherry, iron and spice notes. Best from 2022 through 2035. 300 cases imported.

Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches 2018 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92-94)

The 2018 Beaune Clos des Mouches Rouge 1er Cru has a very pure, charming bouquet of layers of dark cherry, raspberry coulis and blueberry aromas, with just a touch of warmth from the slightly higher level of alcohol. The medium-bodied palate delivers saturated tannins. Lush and generous, almost New World-like in terms of fruit profiles, with a caressing finish. Lovely.

Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches 2019 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92-94)

The 2019 Beaune Clos des Mouches 1er Cru (Rouge) contains 30% whole cluster. Dark berry fruit commingles with wet clay and light minty aromas. The palate is well balanced with a silky texture, a little "fatter" than the Beaune Grèves, with hints of licorice toward the persistent and very saline finish. This deserves four to five years in bottle, but it has a long, prosperous future ahead.

Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 2018 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (90-92+)

The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru is also promising, exhibiting aromas of rich berry fruit, dark chocolate and creamy new oak. It's medium to full-bodied, velvety and supple, with an ample core of sweet fruit, ripe acids and melting tannins. This sample showed slight signs of fatigue, so I suspect that the final cuvée may make my score seem conservative.

Vinous (88-90)

The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Village showed just a little more reduction on the nose compared to Drouhin’s other Village Crus. The palate is compact and quite tight, delivering good weight but just missing a little amplitude. However, I do enjoy the sapidity on the aftertaste, and maybe it is simply biding its time. Give it a couple of years in bottle.

Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2015 (6x75cl)

Burghound (95)

A very ripe nose features notes of plum, cassis, humus, forest floor and violet. The velvet-textured, concentrated and very serious big-bodied flavors possess seemingly endless reserves of sappy dry extract which helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the mocha-infused finish. This beautifully complex effort is less austere than it usually is at this point though the structure makes it pointedly clear that this is going to age for a very long time.

Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2016 (6x75cl)

Burghound (95)

A somber and highly reserved nose only reluctantly offers up notes of plum, violet and freshly turned earth. There is exceptionally good richness to the big-bodied and muscular flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract that serves to buffer the markedly firm tannins on the powerful, youthfully austere and hugely long finish. This is quite simply terrific but note well that it would be pointless to buy this without the intention to allow it at least 10 years of cellar time.

Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2018 (6x75cl)

Vinous (92-94)

The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru comes from vines close to the small tower within the vineyard. Limpid in color, it has a crisp, well-defined bouquet, showing more precision than the Clos-de-Bèze tasted alongside. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky texture, quite rich but nicely focused, with probably more oak on the finish that will need to be subsumed. The 30% whole bunch lends a little freshness that is crucial for this blend. Good potential.

Joseph Drouhin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 2019 (6x75cl)

Vinous (93-95)

The 2019 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is mixture of estate and contracted fruit – about two-thirds and one-third, respectively. It has a powerful bouquet of dark cherries and boysenberry fruit, maybe just needing a little more delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit on the entry and good grip. More sinewy than other Clos Vougeot tasted. There is a subtle but welcome tang of white pepper on the aftertaste thanks to the 40% whole cluster.

Joseph Drouhin Meursault 1er Cru Charmes 2017 (6x75cl)

Vinous (93)

The 2017 Meursault Charmes 1er Cru had been bottled in August 2018. It has a well-defined bouquet, hints of white chocolate infusing the citrus fruit, and just a touch of honey giving away the warmth of the growing season. The palate is well-balanced with a discreet spicy opening that dovetails into a pure, quite tensile midpalate. There is a sense of fullness to this Meursault, which displays impressive amplitude toward the persistent finish. This comes highly recommended.

Wine Advocate (91-93)

The 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru has turned out beautifully this year, wafting from the glass with scents of dark berry fruit, orange rind and grilled squab, complemented by a deft overlay of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, textural and expansive, it's supple and enveloping, its generous core of fruit underpinned by velvety tannins and ripe acids.
