"The spectacular Griotte-Chambertin is my favorite of Drouhin's offerings in 1995. Darkly-colored and revealing a sublime nose of bacon and luscious, jammy cherries it explodes with intensely ripe red fruits, mocha and the flavors of a well-reduced veal stock (a dark, sweet, meat savor). Silky-smooth, full-bodied and powerful, its flavors go on and on. It needs to be cellared for 6-7 years and will drink admirably for 8+ years. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29. The wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Pinot Noir, a fragile varietal, reacts poorly to fining, filtration, and careless bottling techniques, I recommend caution when considering buying a red burgundy based on cask samples. I called it as I tasted it, and hope the bottled wine reflects the quality of the samples I was provided." - Pierre Rovani, robertparker.com (Jun 26, 1997)
