Joseph Drouhin, Cote de Beaune Villages
This is a wonderful expression of the southern half of the Cote d'Or, Burgundy's beating heart. Based on wines from the villages of Beaune, Volnay, Pommard and Aloxe Corton, this complex, soft and luscious wine is full of red berries, summer fruits and ever-so subtle spices.
Maison Joseph Drouhin are a family-owned and run company based right in the historical heart of the historic town of Beaune. They are steeped in history. Cellars under their central location run for multiples of kilometres and show evidence of major historical occupations from fragments of Roman walls to the bricks used to hide wine from the Nazis in the 1940s.
All of their wines are certified organic and their own domaine vineyards are biodynamic. You won't see this anywhere on their labels however, because their belief is that quality in the glass is the only way in which their wines should be judged. True, they believe that this is best done via organic farming, but this in itself isn't reason for preferential treatment: that comes when you try their wines!
