Joseph Drouhin is known for his exceptional commitment to expressing the terroir and the vintage above all. That extends to his overseeing even the weathering of the wood in his French oak barrels, ensuring this element only enhances and never distracts from the wine. The level of detail orientation borders on clinical, but the wine is so delicious that we'd never judge. Floral at the outset, building in fruity aromas as it opens, this is another outstanding vintage from Drouhin.

James Suckling

A really concentrated but very graceful Beaune 1er Cru. Very subtle nose of red fruit with nice floral notes and discreet spicy oak. Glides over the palate, the fine tannins already beautifully integrated. Very long, silky finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
