In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.

Moderate reduction renders the nose unreadable for the moment though there is excellent volume and phenolic ripeness to the generous and impressively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess an opulent even juicy texture yet the overall palate impression is a serious wine of power and grace. This is a bit awkward today but everything is here for this to mature into potentially sensational juice. Burghound.

Bright ruby colour. On the nose, intense aromas of wild cherry, liquorice and mild spices, evolving towards notes of undergrowth and mushroom. On the palate, excellent balance between tannin, acidity and gras (velvety texture). The aftertaste is reminiscent of little red berries.

LaForet Pinot Noir has a brilliant ruby-garnet color. The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant, and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink - fresh and fruity berry flavors with light and elegant tannins.

Das Kredenzen eines Grand Cru von JOSEPH DROUHIN stellt einen ganz besonderen Moment dar und ist immer ein Erlebnis. Der Rebberg der Einzellage GRIOTTE-CHAMBERTIN macht nicht einmal 3 ha aus, aber die Weine, die daraus entstehen, begründen einen eigenen Mythos. Die Fruchtaromatik - Griotten, wie könnte es anders sein - im Bouquet ist überwältigend, verleitet zum Träumen und verheisst vieles. Es ist die Harmonie, die Finesse und die Einheit, die diesem grossen Gewächs die Dimension verleiht, die man sich wünscht. Das Finale wiederspiegelt dies aufs Eindrücklichste.
