WW 93
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: The Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin is synonymous with high quality, the 2017 vintage is one of the best efforts to date. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright and bouncy. Enjoy its aromas and flavors of red and blue fruits with a well-seasoned leg of lamb. (Tasted: April 25, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
JS 92
James Suckling
Spicy, cedary and minty with raspberries and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Smoke and tar at the end. Structured. Drink after 2022.
BH 91
Burghound.com
A much less expressive and brooding nose grudgingly reveals wild dark berries, earth, forest floor and plenty of sauvage character. The rich and reasonably dense medium weight flavors possess a lovely sense of vibrancy, all wrapped in a lightly stony, serious and built-to-age finale. This too is a quality villages level effort.
Barrel Sample: 89-91
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aromas of sweet grilled meats, spicy cassis, cherries and rich soil tones introduce the 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Village, a medium to full-bodied, ample and impressively layered wine that includes some premier cru juice. With good depth and length, it's a decided success at the communal level this year.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

Wine Spectator

This red is marked by a laser of cherry and currant flavors, with grace notes of earth, iron and tobacco. The texture is both supple and firm, with a long finish of cherry, earth and spice accents. Best from 2021 through 2033.

Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Faithfully preserving the individuality of each appellation, the Drouhin firm constantly strives for wines of breed, finesse and elegance.

A balance of tradition and modern techniques characterizes Joseph Drouhin winemaking and vineyard management: on site nursery, plowing, leaf removal, 100% hand harvesting, open fermenters, fermenting and aging in oak.

As a result of its historic location deep in the heart of Beaune, the quality of its vineyards and the expertise resulting from years of experience in the cultivation of vines and traditional vinification, Maison Joseph Drouhin is uniquely placed to uphold authentic Burgundian style.

Starting with Joseph Drouhin, who founded Maison Joseph Drouhin over a century ago, a great estate has evolved with important holdings in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis and, most recently, Oregon.

MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN AWARDED ORGANIC CERTIFICATION Estate-grown Grapes of 2009 Vintage and later Now Officially Organic. Twenty years after Philippe Drouhin first began introducing organic practices to the vineyards making up the family company’s domaine (estate), Maison Joseph Drouhin (MJD), has been awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage.

Gevrey-Chambertin Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot Noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot Noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
