    Winemaker Notes

    The loveliest wine name of Beaujolais (some will even say of France) is certainly Saint-Amour, at the northern end of the Beaujolais Hills. Here, the vines, pruned very short in the gobelet shape, climb the steep slopes of pink granite. At harvest time, the grapes are always hand-picked to avoid bruising. The alcoholic fermentation takes 8 to 10 days and involves such traditional methods as punching down the cap and pumping over the juice. During the Winter, the malolactic fermentation further reduces the acidity level. But the wine still needs 7 to 8 months of ageing for the lees to be eliminated and the wine completely ready. Saint-Amour has the most beautiful purple colour. A profound aroma of violet and musk is very distinctive. Round and supple, the wine ends on a long, fruity aftertaste. Served slightly cool, Saint-Amour is a very versatile wine: it can be served in any season of the year, at the beginning of a meal, as well as at the end. Its friendly nature makes it the favourite of the bistros and wine lovers around the world.

    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.
