Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Medium Ruby with pure red fruit on the youthful nose,100% Pinot Noir. On the palate, this dry red has flavors of cherry and strawberry with a bit of licorice. Medium+ acidity with fine soft tannins on medium finish. Good now and over the short term. Nice value. — 6 days ago
On open ....Glorious 2015 fruit. Black cherries. Spice. Maybe a kiss of licorice. Long sweet finish. Super tasty but not super complex at this point. Integrated tanins. Crazy silky on the palate. ... after an hour there Are sick flowers peeking out from under the covers. Candied lilacs ? Palate getting sick and more complex. Like this concentrated licorice flower on the finish Odd because it doesnt present as tannic or woody like most wines that are too young. ... 2.5 hours in this is much more serious. Like a brooding teenager a bit. More young and correct cherries. More apparent structure. Tanins are more present. Bizarre. Almost like a Benjamin button wine a bit. — 6 days ago
Au Flocon de Sel. Un premier vin, blanc, pour accompagner les services de fera, ecrevisses, champignons et brochet. Tout simplement délicieux. On y denote des fruits blancs et tropicaux et un peu de miel. On retrouve un petit côté minéral, de pierres. La bouche est ronde, grasse. C’est crémeux et frais à la fois. Le bois se fait encore sentir. Longueur excellente. — 19 days ago
On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!
I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try! — a day ago
Mother Mary of God! It’s a stunning example of why I adore White Burgundy.
The nose reveals; Meyer lemon, Granny Smith apples, pineapple, lime zest, stone fruit, under ripe green melon, beeswax, honeysuckle, touch of caramel, fruit blossoms, river stones, cream for days, gentle white spice, powdery limestone & brilliant, soft gentle chalkiness, steely minerals, some flintiness with jasmine, mixed greens, yellow lilies and spring flowers.
The body is full, rich, lush and waxy. It’s simply stunning as it glides over the palate. It just doesn’t get much better in White Burgundy unless you spend seriously more money. Meyer lemon, Granny Smith apples, pineapple, lime zest, stone fruit, under ripe green melon, kiwi, bruised Bosc pear, beeswax, honeysuckle, vanillin notes, touch of caramel, fruit blossoms, river stones, cream for days, butter, gentle white spice with soft, warm heat, herbaceous, powdery limestone & brilliant, soft gentle chalkiness, steely minerals, some flintiness with jasmine, mixed greens, yellow lilies and spring flowers. The phat, round acidity is like a warm, gentle rain shower. The rich, lush, ripe, polished, well balanced finish is delicious and persists several minutes.

Nose has ripe black cherry, stemmy notes or autumn leaves, ripe plum flesh, red/green pepper in your brown paper grocery bag which got a little wet in the rain as you hurried to your car, mashed blackberry and light oak toasty-ness.
Palate has blackberry & black cherry jam, over-ripe black currant, light green herbs and toasty oak barrel.
Decanted ~3hr, just becoming ready after about 5hr. 2013 was a satisfactory vintage, this faired well. — 6 days ago
Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.
Nice nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, light oak, spices, earth, river rocks, bitter herbs and green vegetables.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, red currants, oak, smoke, vegetables, earth, spices, peppercorn, green herbs and espresso.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a great surprise. Not my style of red wine, yet so enjoyable for me.
Nicely balanced with a smooth mouthfeel and nice complexity.
A good quality wine and very enjoyable, even by itself, with a nice tangy ending.
This is not from a great vintage, but it is drinking very nicely now, and will age nicely in the next 5 to 8 years.
This 7 year old is good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up. I enjoyed it a little chilled, all by itself.
Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels. Only 2,200 bottles produced. This is bottle number 93.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

I love this site. It’s so distinct and in the right hands makes 1er quality wine that’s like a mini Perrieres as it has the same super rocky poor soil. Meyer lemon, butter, grilled nuts, mineral, tree bark, so earthy and mineral. Palate is so elegant and just beautiful. Wow. Hauntingly elegant. So mineral with some buttery fruit but man this is wow. This has really caught me off guard. Fuck. What a beautiful wine. — 9 days ago
