Maison Joseph Drouhin
Côte de Beaune 2016
Other vintages available

Grape variety Chardonnay
Soil clay and limestone
Ageing in barrels (20% in a new oak)


This  interesting and unusual wine comes from the estate of Joseph Drouhin on the Côte de Beaune (the slope above Beaune) and some declassified wine from the young vines of the famous Clos des Mouches vineyard.


"A truly delicious and harmonious wine. Pale gold color, very bright. The aromas bring to mind honey, almond and lemongrass (citronella). As the wine matures, intense flavors of grilled hazelnut and almonds are in evidence".

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin


This vintage produced wines of various styles, some with a rather high acidity level, others offering roundness. The main factor has been the frost. The vines hit by this severe spring frost very often matured later, giving fairly nervous wines, whereas the plots spared by frost reached a more precocious maturity. Many beautiful wines in this multi-faceted vintage. 


Temperature: 13°C (55°F). 

Cellaring: 3 to 5 years.
