Joseph Drouhin (375ml), 2010, Laforêt Bourgogne Pinot Noir

Red, Old World, Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France

Past wine – out of stock



Founded in Beaune in 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin's cellars have spread from the historical Cellars of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Kings of France in Beaune (12th-18th centuries) to the Moulin de Vaudon, an 18th Century watermill in Chablis.

The Joseph Drouhin Domaine was assembled parcel by parcel over the years and comprises today 73 hectares (182.5 acres) of vineyards in Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise and Chablis. It is one of the most important domains in Burgundy, with more than two thirds of the vineyards classified as Premier and Grand Crus.

A rigorous attention to detail, self-imposed discipline, a desire to learn, a rigorous sense of values, passion and daring, are the qualities that have been handed down through the generations, together with the art of winemaking and a never ending search for quality. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm. Each has his role to play in imposing the Family "Charter of Excellence". Véronique Drouhin-Boss is the Head Winemaker

The wine is assembled from parcels vinified in stainless-steel vats (7 to 8 months) and from those made in one to two-year old barrels (for the wines of higher provenance). 2010 was an excellent vintage in Burgundy and this is reflected in the quality of this Bourgogne Rouge and being the equivalent of 6 or so years old this is now drinking beautifully.  Last tasted by us in January 2014 - light red colour with intense sour cherry flavours that became more legant as the wine opened up.
