"This will be a great vintage for the Drouhin Griotte-Chambertin, as the wine soars from the glass in a blazing bouquet of red and black cherries, blood orange, grilled meat, coffee, mustard seed, cedar and a beautifully complex base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and utterly stunning, with a sappy core of pure fruit, ripe tannins, superb focus and grip and great backend bounce and intensity of flavor. Brilliant juice. 2020-2060+."
Antonio Galloni - Vinous:
"The 2009 Griotte-Chambertin is beautiful, elegant and totally weightless. This shows gorgeous subtlety and inner juiciness through to the nuanced finish. Griottes, spices and flowers linger on the close. My sense is this is holding a lot back in reserve at the moment. The Griotte-Chambertin is made from estate fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029."
