Volnay Burgundy Volnay J. Drouhin 1971

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little forest floor and sweet herb on the autumnal nose with hints of waxy red fruit and rhubarb slowly emerging on the high-toned nose. In the mouth this is fresh with a nice edge of bottle sweetness tempering the rather high acid. A bit spiky on the midpalate with a touch of acetic acid highlighting the sweet/sour nature of the wine. Nice gentle raspberry fruit fades quickly on the short finish. 84pts

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.
