6 x 75cl Grands Vins - De Bourgogne - 13% VOL
|Number of bottles:||6-10|
|Bottle size:||Bottle (0.75L)|
Grape Variety :
Site: a few kilometers south of Beaune, in the celebrated terroir of Côte des Blancs (Slope of the Whites).
History & tradition: Meursault is certainly one of the oldest villages in Burgundy. The camp of Mont Milan, above the
present village, was erected and settled in Neolithic times (2,500 BC), before being occupied by the Gauls (500BC) and
then the Romans. It was finally abandoned for the present location of the village built during the Gallo-Roman period, at
which time the name Muris Saltus (Meursault) was given to it.
Soil: different types of soil are found: deep and colorful around the village, clearer and lighter at mid-slope and nearly
white and very rocky in the upper reaches of the appellation.
Plantation density: 10,000 stocks/ha in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir.
Yield: 49hl/ha, low on purpose to limit the production of each vine stock.
Supply: grapes and must purchased from regular suppliers.
Pressing: very slow so as to respect fruit. Juices from the very last pressings are not retained.
No yeasts or enzymes are used. The wine goes directly into barrels after "débourbage" (decanting of white wine to reduce
Type: in barrels (25% in new oak).
Length: 12 months.
Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is then
completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true
expression of terroir and character of the vintage.
Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
"A refined wine, well appreciated in the whole world. A beautiful golden colour and a great aromatic palette: honey,
linden flower ("tilleul"), hazelnut butter, sometimes even chamomile or hawthorn. On the palate, a silky roundness. Long
on the aftertaste, with flavours of yellow plum and gingerbread".
It is a great vintage and, despite their unctuous character, all the wines keep their typicity of origin.
Temperature: 13°C (55°C).
LA MAISON JOSEPH 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.
