Wine Critic Reviews:

Drouhin's 2010 Corton-Charlemagne is impeccably refined from start to finish. Citrus, white flowers and mint all take shape in the glass. This finely sculpted, nuanced, utterly brilliant wine possesses fabulous intensity and pointedness through to the vibrant, polished finish. I love the pure unbridled energy here. This is an exceptional showing from Drouhin... eRobertParker.com (Antonio Galloni)

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Drouhin: Maison Joseph Drouhin's reputation only seems to improve as the years go by, and their wines are one of the most uplifting you will find anywhere in the world. There's a beautiful progression in terms of flavor when you compare young and aged Joseph Drouhin wines. While the richness and purity of fruit are always there, the wines seem to just grow in texture exponentially each year, so the are amazing for keeping in your cellar if you can resist uncorking them early. They are still wonderful while young, so it is in no way a waste, and they can perform at any fancy event you can think up for them. Expect the berries to almost crunch in your mouth as they massage your tastebuds.
