Party-Ready: Grand Cru Red Burg MAGNUMS
2007 Drouhin Clos Saint-Denis 1.5Ls
Because The Holidays Are Basically Here...
There are only 16 days until Thanksgiving. Now, before you start freaking out, let us help...
This offer walks a fine line between two very different worlds.
First, this is Grand Cru red Burgundy; this is an aristocrat. Drouhin's 2007s are beautiful wines, supple, fresh, great intensity of fruit and the Clos St.-Denis is superb.
Second however, and perhaps of some importance this time of year, this is a party wine. This is Drouhin, this is Grand Cru, but it lands on your holiday table crazy-priced and ready to party.
These are the only mags in the U.S. and our parcel is small. This offer goes out only to a focused list of Burgundy fanatics - please let us know as soon as possible if you have any interest.
As said above, Drouhin's 2007s are superb and the Clos St.-Denis highlights the textural elegance of this vintage, with a bit of that Chambolle satin and a bit of the firmness of Gevrey. Burgundy guru Clive Coates describes Clos St.-Denis verily: "The words supple and delicate spring to mind, as do fragrant and ‘feminine.’"
This really is what Burgundy should taste like, what it should feel like. Out of magnum, the bottle will look spectacular and drink even better on the holiday table. Even if that table is set for a small group of friends, any day of the week.
As a last caveat, I'd add that we may all be underestimating the potential of the 2007s (to say nothing of the format). Don't bury this in the cellar as a last will and testament for the grand kids - but at the same time this wine, again especially in magnum, has the balance and stuffing to be in prime form for another 5+ years pretty easily.
That's it. We anticipate a quick sell-out so please do give us your order as soon as possible.
