    Winemaker Notes

    The appellation "Cote de Beaune Villages" can be claimed for all the villages of the Cote de Beaune (all the communal AC), except for Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard and Volnay. Theoretically, it could be a blend of grapes coming from 16 different villages, but in practice they come from only a few. As everywhere in the Cote d'Or, Pinot Noir is the only grape variety used in this appellation. The characteristic of the wine is that it is the result of a wide range of soil combination bringing great complexity to the ensemble.

    At harvest time, the grapes are hand-picked. They ferment and macerate in open vats for a period of 14 to 18 days, depending on the taste and texture of the wine. The fermentation starts naturally and is conducted in the classical way, forcing the cap down and pumping over the juice. The different "cuvees" stay in barrels for 10 or 12 months. In traditional fashion, the wines are racked off in the Spring and prior to bottling. Fining is done with egg whites.

    The wines from the Northern part of the Cote bring great finesse, the ones from the Southern part bring structure. Cote de Beaune Villages can be enjoyed when young after 2 years or so of age. It has a nice purple hue. The nose offers pretty and delicate flavours of red berries. It is a wonderful example of Burgundy Pinot Noir at a reasonable price.

    Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Faithfully preserving the individuality of each appellation, the Drouhin firm constantly strives for wines of breed, finesse and elegance.

    A balance of tradition and modern techniques characterizes Joseph Drouhin winemaking and vineyard management: on site nursery, plowing, leaf removal, 100% hand harvesting, open fermenters, fermenting and aging in oak.

    As a result of its historic location deep in the heart of Beaune, the quality of its vineyards and the expertise resulting from years of experience in the cultivation of vines and traditional vinification, Maison Joseph Drouhin is uniquely placed to uphold authentic Burgundian style.

    Starting with Joseph Drouhin, who founded Maison Joseph Drouhin over a century ago, a great estate has evolved with important holdings in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis and, most recently, Oregon.

    MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN AWARDED ORGANIC CERTIFICATION Estate-grown Grapes of 2009 Vintage and later Now Officially Organic. Twenty years after Philippe Drouhin first began introducing organic practices to the vineyards making up the family company’s domaine (estate), Maison Joseph Drouhin (MJD), has been awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage.
