Fine Wines of Burgundy
The spiritual home of two of the world’s finest grapes, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir!
Burgundy is a complex region that gets under people’s skin. For some, its mosaic of tiny vineyards and enormous roster of producers becomes a form of lifelong study, for others it is simply a great source of wonderfully intense and all too drinkable wines.
The region stretches 140 miles from Chablis in the North to Pouilly-Fuissé near Mâcon in the South. In between is the Côte d’Or, an escarpment which neatly divides into the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
Joseph Drouhin: listed as one of Tim Atkin’s top Burgundy producers:
“Learning about Burgundy takes time, but that’s part of its fascination. The majority of the greatest bottles I have ever tasted have been Burgundies – wines that have touched my soul, heart and senses……”
A bit about this producer:
Representing uncompromising excellence; from Bourgogne Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to the rarest Grands Crus, Maison Joseph Drouhin is one of the most renowned and iconic producers in Burgundy. The impressive estate stretches across 90 appellations, curling around the picturesque villages of one of the most sought-after wine regions in the world. Terroir is fundamental here, with each piece of land offering a unique expression of Burgundy’s flagship grape varieties.
