Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin: A Burgundy Masterpiece


Maison Joseph Drouhin is a name synonymous with Burgundian excellence, and their Gevrey-Chambertin is a testament to this esteemed reputation. This Pinot Noir hails from the legendary Gevrey-Chambertin appellation, revered for producing structured, powerful, and age-worthy wines that express the unique terroir of the region.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: A captivating ruby red hue with subtle garnet reflections at the rim, hinting at the wine's evolution and complexity.
  • Nose: Aromas leap from the glass, revealing an intricate tapestry of ripe black cherries, wild raspberries, and a touch of cassis. Earthy nuances of forest floor, damp leaves, and delicate spice notes of clove and nutmeg add further layers of intrigue. Subtle hints of vanilla and toasted oak emerge from its time in French oak barrels.
  • Palate: The wine delivers a powerful yet elegant gustatory experience. Firm tannins provide a robust structure, balanced by vibrant acidity. The initial burst of ripe red and black fruit gives way to complex savory notes of leather, game, and subtle minerality. The finish is exceptionally long and lingering, marked by hints of black tea and a delicate smokiness.

Food Pairings

The robust structure and complex flavours of Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin demand equally sophisticated culinary companions. Consider these classic pairings:

  • Rich Meats: Duck confit, roasted lamb with rosemary and garlic, or a hearty beef bourguignon are natural partners for this wine. The wine's tannins and acidity beautifully cut through the richness of the meat.
  • Game: Venison prepared with wild mushrooms, or a classic roast pheasant with juniper berries, will find harmony with the wine's earthy and savoury character.
  • Aged Cheeses: Comte, aged Gouda, or a well-matured cheddar offer a salty, creamy counterpoint to the wine's structure, highlighting its fruit and spice notes.

Cellaring Potential

Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin, like many top-tier Burgundies, possesses excellent ageing potential. With careful cellaring, this wine can continue to develop complexity and nuance for a decade or more. Ideal storage conditions include a cool, dark place with consistent humidity and minimal vibration.
