Joseph Drouhin Vero Save 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

<strong>Reg. Price $24.99, Our Price $18.99 SAVE 24%</strong> Vero is short for Veronique, the name of the only daughter of Robert Drouhin and one of four siblings now active in the management of Maison Joseph Drouhin of Beaune. Veronique Boss-Drouhin is a trained oenologist and personally oversees the production of this, "her" wine. Although the wine is an "assemblage" (blend) of wines from well-known Burgundy villages. 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 which is 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. The wine reflects: the mineral and lively quality of Chablis; the delicate aromas of Rully; the richness and roundness of Meursault; the seduction and elegance of Puligny Montrachet.

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.
