Drouhin Cotes de Beaune 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The straight Chassagne AC from Maison Drouhin (the Laguiche bottling is actually made up of a couple of premier crus, primarily Morgeot) is lovely in 2006. The wine is precise and racy, and avoids the high alcohol levels that plague so many 2006 whites, as it offers up a classic bouquet of apple, peach, buttered toast, a lovely base of soil and a discreet touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and quite classy for Chassagne villages, with no heaviness, and a generous attack followed up by a lovely, racy and minerally finish. Good juice. 2007-2015. (Nov/Dec 2007)

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.
