Producer Tasting Notes

A very pleasant wine. Bright, clear red colour. Aromas are surprising in their intensity and fruit. On the palate, a tender, supple, graceful, round body. Very flavourful in the aftertaste, with a hint of blackberry jam. When the wine gets older, wild blackberry is the dominant aroma. After 3 or 5 years, the wine takes on a distinctive smell of truffle and undergrowth evolving towards notes of venison.


Vineyard Notes

Site: very close to Beaune, as the name indicates. This is a small appellation around the tiny village of Chorey, at the foot of the hill of Corton.History & tradition: the wine is often sold under the more common appellation of Côte-de-Beaune Villages. Joseph Drouhin owns vineyards in Chorey (pronounced Sho-Ray).Soil: clay and limestone.Drouhin estate: 0, 9 ha. (2.25 acres).Average age of the vines: 53 years.


Winemaking

Harvesting: by hand, in small open crates in order to preserve the integrity of the fruitSorting of the grapes: in the vineyard and at the cuverie (winery) if necessary. Maceration: - maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks - indigenous yeasts - maceration and fermentation temperatures under total control Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance to a wine but should never be detrimental to its finesse and typical character.Pigeage (punching down of the cap during fermentation): once a day until half of fermentation is done; one pumping over (remontage) per day till the end of the fermentation.Pressing: separation of free run juice from pressed juice.


Ageing

Type: in barrels (10% in new oak) Length: 12 to 15 months. Origin of the wood: French oak forests. Weathering of the wood: Joseph Drouhin insists on total control of the weathering for a period of 3 years, one of the contributing elements to the elegance of the wine. Follow-up: barrel by barrel. Fining (collage, to clarify the wine): light, after careful tasting. Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation, barrel by barrel. 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.
