Joseph Drouhin Laforet Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2012
About the Pinot Noir, born in Burgundy, Maison Joseph Drouhin created this wine like a perfume: with elegance and fruitiness in the Chalonnais, depth from the Cote d'Or. Within are red fruit aromas: raspberries, redcurrant and blackcurrants. There is a subtle spiciness in the mouthfeel, with delicate tannins and silky texture. An attractive and well-bred Pinot Noir.
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.
