Joseph Drouhin Laforet Bourgogne Chardonnay 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

“Full of life! A bouquet of citrus aromas, and then we find honey and vanilla. In the mouth, it’s funky, spontaneous, striking. Really charming! Aperitif “finger food“? A light (almost) improvised dinner, lunch in a trendy restaurant, LaForêt is always in right place! Its a no brainer, LaForêt is at ease everywhere and with everything or almost! Chardonnay and sushi, veggie pizza… simple things, a sign of times.” *-Véronique Boss-Drouhin*

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.

Joseph Drouhin proves to me once again that French "terroir" exudes resonating complexity on even their so-called "everyday" wines. This pale white wine from France's hallowed Burgundy region imparts a crisp, dry, slightly floral, light, yet complex notes of civility to a light meal or hors d'oevres. Truly a bargain; superior to many US wines at twice the price point.

Great juice for the price. Nice minerality, good acidity and finish.

Lots of fruit characters - peach, fig, citrus, green apple. Honey, vanilla, stoney/earthy, spicy. Dry, medium body, high acidity. A touch of oak, but virtually none. Subtle, balanced.

Full of life! A bouquet of citrus aromas, and then we find honey and vanilla. In the mouth, it's funky, spontaneous, striking. Really charming!. Aperitif "finger food"? A light (almost) improvised dinner, lunch in a trendy restaurant, LaForêt is always in right place! Its a no brainer, LaForêt is at ease everywhere and with everything or almost! Chardonnay and sushi, veggie pizza... simple things, a sign of times. LaForêt is dressed in a smart casual way to surprise its friends. A concise simplified label, a screwcap, an outer decorated with a whirlwind of bottles... No doubt about it, LaForêt is trendy! - Winery

Fruity and full of life. This is a classical white Burgundy and a good entry level wine for Burgundy in general. The colour is golden yellow, with a greenish glint. The aromas are reminiscent of fresh grape and green almond. Elegant texture. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
