Joseph Drouhin Volnay 2020
Domaine Joseph Drouhin is one of the oldest, most respected wine producers in the Burgundy region, established in Beaune by the enterprising Joseph Drouhin in 1880, at the tender age of just 22, when he took control of a merchant business which itself dated back to 1756. Joseph’s sole focus was quality, and he invested heavily in his vineyards to ensure a supply of top quality fruit.
This vintage shows beautiful crop. The reds are colourful, structured and very expressive aromatically. The balance between alcohol and acidity is satisfactory.
A wine of great elegance with a vivid and bright colour. When the wine is young, the aromas are reminiscent of violet and black currant. With age, the aromas take on notes of ripe or candied fruit, mushroom and mild spices. On the palate, a pleasant sensation of roundness and velvety texture. Long aftertaste, with touches of candied fruit and vanilla.
Roasted red meats, Roasted lamb, Mushrooms, and Sheep cheese.
