Maison Drouhin’s 2015 Côte de Nuits-Villages is excellent and this is one of the lower level bottlings that shows absolutely perfect ripeness in its complex and stylish nose of black cherries, cassis, espresso, dark soil tones, fresh thyme and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and very transparent in personality, with lovely focus and grip, a good core and just a touch of modest tannin perking up the long and tangy finish. This is a blend of grapes from Prémeaux, Corgoloin, Comblanchien (all south of Nuits St. Georges) and Fixin this year. Fine juice. (Drink between 2019-2040)
(picked over a period of ten days and fully destemmed): Bright medium red. Aromas of black cherry and violet seem a bit shallow after the Beaune premier crus but convey attractive perfumed lift. Then juicy, lively and bright on the palate, with a pungent quality to the flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and menthol. Offers excellent lift in a leanish, slightly medicinal style that I would describe as a bit atypical for 2015. This should make a delightful early drinker but also has a firm spine.(ST)
