Out From The Shadows:
2019 Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru

Posted by Ian McFadden

I've been hunting down Drouhin's 2019s for the past few months.

As we've written before, Drouhin excels in ripe vintages. Their delicate and understated style really thrives in these years.

People are incredibly excited about the 2019 red Burgundies because it's a ripe vintage with some special characteristics.  

The tidy summary of the 2019 vintage in Burgundy is that it was a ripe one that produced wines that miraculously remained fresh and with vivid terroir imprints. It's easy to imagine the total package being very impressive.

I've started to view Drouhin's Gevrey 1er Cru as one of the hidden gems in their vast lineup. It delivers quite a bit for the money. I really enjoy how the wine combines Gevrey's soil-inflected muscle with Drouhin's refined and ultra-pure style. In 2019, you expect everything to be magnified in a very flattering way. 

I find Drouhin's wines very compelling in how nothing is forced and how they express themselves with such precision and clarity. The 2019 is a very powerful example of this.
