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.

Somewhat flat and bland with some red cherry and decent acidity. This could use more fruit and/or body.

First France Pinot Noir. Not bad at all. Very Pale and translucent slightly brown Ruby Color. Very dry with more of a spice, mineral, musty, and earth nose and taste than fruit. Fruit when it came is more of a sour plum/cherry. Compared this to a bit of the Sierra del Mar California Pinot. the Reverse Wine Snob has a review of this @ http://www.reversewinesnob.com/2013/08/joseph-drouhin-laforet-bourgogne.html

Light to medium bodies with ripe fruits. Stands on its own nicely but went well with the pork tenderloin we enjoyed this with for dinner tonight.

Rich and drier than a traditional Pinot Noir. Black earth undertones. Great and drinkable without overpowering.

A wine full of charm: bright ruby colour and a nose rich with aromas of red fruit (raspberry, red currants, wild strawberry). On the palate, the wine is pleasant, fruity and refreshing, with light tannins and great elegance. Aperitif "finger food"? A light (almost) improvised dinner, lunch in a trendy restaurant, LaForet is always in right place! Its a no brainer, LaForet is at ease everywhere and with everything or almost! Pinot Noir and grilled chicken, pasta with pesto... simple things, a sign of times. - Winery

The hue has usually a brillant ruby-garnet colour. The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink : fresh and fruity berry flavours with light and elegant tannins.

A wine full of charm: bright ruby color and a nose rich with aromas of red fruit (raspberry, red currants, wild strawberry). On the palate, the wine is pleasant, fruity and refreshing, with light tannins and great elegance. It is not a wine we recommend to cellar for many years. Drink it when young, up to two or three years. We suggest serving Laforet at 59° F-61° F. Easy to match with food, it will be best with assorted deli meats, poultry, white meat, "au gratin" dishes, roasted meat and soft cheese. - Winery

Laforêt Pinot Noir 2006 - Joseph Drouhin: Die wahre Königin der Rotweinsorten ist die Pinot Noir. Auf der einen Seite ist sie filigran, finessen- und nuancenreich. Jedoch, sie ist auch sehr empfindlich und anspruchsvoll. Aus dieser Traube kann nur ein Spitzenwein erzeugen, wer wirklich sein Handwerk versteht. Seit Generationen hat Joseph Drouhin diese Erfahrungen inne. Ein prächtiges Rubinrot, feinwürziger Duft von Schattenmorellen und Waldbeeren machen diesen Wein so königlich. Anklänge von Rauch, geschmeidiges Tannin lassen ihn opulent und reich wirken, dagegen macht ihn seine elegante Struktur zu einem ausgewogenen Tropfen.Auf die Tafel zu empfehlen sind luftgetrockneter Schinken, Wildpasteten oder geschmorte Bratengerichte.Weingut: Joseph DrouhinRegion: BurgundRebsorte: Pinot NoirInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,5 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: 5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Frankreich > Burgund
