Description

Aged for 12-16 months in French oak barrels, the Joseph Drouhin Cote de Beaune 2017 is a beautiful purple colour in the glass. The nose is delicate and fruity with aromas of strawberry and redcurrant. On the palate, tannins are refined with a rounded mouthfeel and long finish. This is a wine of great harmony and elegance.

Founded in 1880 by the then 22-year-old Joseph Drouhin, this famous Burgundy Negociant is still family owned. Maison Joseph Drouhin owns extensive parcels throughout the region and in Chablis, extending to 73 hectares, including the world-renowned Clos des Mouches, one of the earliest purchases made by Joseph. From Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche through to Meursault and to Corton Charlemagne in the Côte de Beaune, Echezaux to Clos de Vougeot in the Côte de Nuits, the domaines produce a wide spectrum from Laforêt Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge to Grands Crus in Musigny and Chambertin. Joseph Drouhin’s foremost concern is to express the exact character of each terroir. Since 1993 they have worked their vineyards to organic and biodynamic principles, “bringing natural answers to natural problems”. The progress of every wine is meticulously monitored and recorded at every stage; they were one of the first houses in Burgundy to apply bar codes to the barrels to ensure total traceability. Every cork is stamped with Joseph Drouhin, the appellation, and the vintage in order to guarantee the authenticity of the wine.

Food matches: Serve alongside a rack of lamb with herb crust, pan-fried duck breast with redcurrant sauce, or mushroom risotto.
