Joseph Drouhin

Joseph Drouhin Cotes de Beaune Rouge 2012
MOP408.00
Tax included

Grape Variety :

Pinot Noir.

Vineyard Site:

on the hill overlooking the city of Beaune. This appellation should not be confused with Côte de Beaune-Villages (a blend of various villages from the Côte de Beaune). History & tradition: this is a particular wine since it comes from the vines of the Joseph Drouhin estate (total vineyard area around 3 hectares - 7.5 acres) as well as from the younger vines of Clos des Mouches and other Premier Crus of Beaune that have been declassified (a Beaune wine can be declassified into Côte de Beaune).

Soil: chalky, not very deep. The slope can be steep and the exposure is South/South-East. Drouhin estate: 2,6 ha. (6.5 acres).

Ageing Type:

in barrels (10% in new oak). Length: 12 to 15 months. Origin of the wood: French oak forests. Weathering of the wood: Joseph Drouhin insists on total control of the weathering for a period of 3 years, one of the contributing elements to the elegance of the wine. Follow-up: barrel by barrel.

Fining ("collage", to clarify the wine): light, after careful tasting. Throughout the aging process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation, barrel by barrel. The data obtained is then completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.

The Joseph Drouhin name is one of the biggest in Burgundy, owning vineyards in Chablis, Cote de Nuits, Cote de Beaune and Cote Chalonnaise. Comprised of mostly Premier and Grand Cru and established in 1880 by Joseph Drouhin, it is still run by 4 of his grandchildren who have all grown up in the vineyards. Family is very important to the Drouhin's and in the summer of 1991, Robert Drouhin together with Miguel Torres, founded Primum Familiae Vini.
