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. This beautiful Premier Cru is located in the north of the Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin is world-famous, not only for its superlative Grand Crus, but also for all its other vineyards. Gevrey is of course the village where the Grand Cru vineyard Chambertin is located. Vines have been cultivated here since 630AD, when a certain Bertin decided to emulate the monks, his neighbors. The wine he made turned out to be spectacular - and the rest is history!

Tasting Notes

Sumptuous deep color. The nose reveals aromas of small and ripe black fruits combined with leather and spice. On the palate, the wine is powerful and dense with a good tannic structure. Long aftertaste.

Food Pairing

Well suited to great cuisine and to fine meats: grilled veal or beef. Fowl, white meat and stews would be ideal with an older vintage, since this ages extremely well.

Grape Variety: Pinot Noir

Country: Burgundy - France
