Winemaker's Notes

Laforêt Bourgogne Chardonnay from Maison Joseph DROUHIN is made from 100 % Chardonnay grapes, picked by hand, coming from all over Burgundy. It derives its bouquet and taste from various terroirs; its general character from Mâcon, its crispy structure from Chablis, its body from Rully, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet depending on certain vintages, and its overall nascent complexity from the young vines of Joseph Drouhins own Crus.

Generally, Laforet has a bright and golden-green hue. The wine is very aromatic, full of life and fruit. It has fresh and crispy notes, with crushed grapes and almond flavours. There is no residual sugar.
