Joseph Drouhin Cote de Beaune 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
"A true delight and a great harmony! A beautiful purple colour. On the nose, delicate and fruity aromas such as strawberry and red currant. On the palate, the tannins are refined and lend a nice roundness to the body. Elegant aftertaste".
Bold hits of licorice and black pepper accent violet and black cherry in this supple, black-fruited Pinot Noir. Etched by soft, dusty tannins and a freshly concentrated, juicy palate, this immediately enjoyable, elegant wine should reward through 2030 at least.
Drouhin's 2019 Côte de Beaune goes from strength to strength. Consisting substantially of declassified Beaune premiers crus, it bursts from the glass with notes of raspberries, cherries, plums and petals. Medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with melting tannins and succulent acids, it's an immensely charming red that exemplifies the appeal of the vintage.
