Joseph Drouhin Chambolle Musigny 2019

$105.00

We have just 5 cases of this special collector’s wine – only our best Burgundy buyers will get a shot at this one.

The wine is sourced from a few tiny estate parcels, that together total just a quarter of a hectare in size, right in the heart of the limestone rich Chambolle-Musigny. The fact that they have to pull these tiny holdings together is why this gets the Village appellation and a modest price tag compared to the neighbors.

And perhaps more than many regions, vintage actually does play a factor in Burgundy, and vintages that end in 9 are typically quite good. That’s not quite the case with the 2019s. They’re not just good, they are generationally great wines, and some have gone even further.

The Financial Times reported in their conversation with Bernard Hervet (Faiveley/Bouchard) that his assessment was that it could “perhaps rival 1865, the greatest vintage of all”. That’s obviously a contest that will take us 20 years and some basic time travel to figure out. Let’s just say this vintage is way above average and leave it at that.

Expert Reviews

93 Points, Jasper Morris
20% whole bunch vinification. Impressively rich purple, the nose is luscious yet not unbalanced. This luxurious style continues across the palate, yet fresh at the finish, a plentiful mouthful, which has maintained its balance with correct acidity and tannins.

93 Points, Wine Spectator
This red is dense, chunky and ripe, packed with plum, blackberry, boysenberry and rose flavors, accented by spice and earth. Rigid finish, with the tannins taking over for now as this winds down, yet the lasting impression is sweet, ripe fruit. Best from 2026.
