Joseph Drouhin Cote de Beaune 2016
A bright and perfumed red with subtle strawberry and floral character. Medium body, vivid acidity and a subtle, focused finish. Turns cream at the end. Consistently beautiful. Drink now.
The 2016 Côte de Beaune had been bottled three weeks prior to my visit. To be honest, I did not quite get the nose, which I suspect might have been suffering some bottle shock. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly grainy tannins, although it lacks a little substance on the finish. I will reserve judgment for now.
