Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur Premier Cru 2018
Domaine Joseph Drouhin is one of the oldest, most respected wine producers in the Burgundy region, established in Beaune by the enterprising Joseph Drouhin in 1880. Gevrey is of course the village where the Grand Cru vineyard Chambertin is located. Vines have been cultivated here since 630AD, when a certain Bertin decided to emulate the monks, his neighbors. The wine he made turned out to be spectacular - and the rest is history! The "Clos Prieur" Premier Cru plot belonged to the Prieurs de Cluny who used to live in the old castle of Gevrey.
