Joseph Drouhin Chardonnay Bourgogne Blanc Véro 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Brilliant gold yellow color; aromas of fruit trees in bloom, fresh almonds and honey. On the palate, the wine coats the mouth with a round, velvety sensation, held together by a nice mineral backbone. Pretty flavors of almond paste, grilled hazelnut and lotus flowers. The overall impression is of lightness, harmony and elegance.

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.

very good basic chardonnay, minimal oak, a mere suggestion of butterscotch, lemon, pear, mildly earthy, well balanced, crisp, lightly bitter finish

Full and generous yet extremely elegant wine, with the distinctive peach and almond nuances characteristic of the commune married seamlessly to the rich Chardonnay fruit and harmonious notes of oak, both in the nose and on the palate.
