A fruity and elegant Côte de Beaune Villages red wine
For four generations, Domaine Joseph Drouhin has been a must-know reference among fine Burgundy wines. Founded in 1880 by Joseph Drouhin, who was 22 years old at the time, the estate has expanded over the years and has reached its current size of 80 hectares. The vines spread over renowned appellations (Beaune, Bonnes-Mares, Chassagne-Montrachet, Clos Vougeot, Corton-Charlemagne, Grands-Echezeaux, Pouilly-Fuissé, etc.).
Since 1957, this family of precursors has advocated respect for the terroir and the environment both regarding the vineyard management and the production of their fine wines.
The red and white wines of Domaine Joseph Drouhin authentically express the mosaic and richness of the Burgundian terroirs. They are renowned for their elegance, their intense fruity aromas and their gourmet complexity.
This Côte de Beaune-Villages wine by Joseph Drouhin comprises a blend of grapes stemming from several villages of the Côte de Beaune.
Vinification and ageing
Harvested and sorted by hand, the grapes undergo maceration and vinification for 2 to 3 weeks in total. Only indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation. The extraction process is carried out with great care in order to give the wine its colour, structure, finesse and distinctiveness. The wine is aged for 12 to 15 months in French oak barrels (10% of which are new), dried for more than 3 years to contribute to the finesse of the wines.
Pinot Noir (100%).
