Côte de Beaune Blanc

Serving Temperature: 55°F.  Cellaring: 3 to 5 years.

TASTING NOTES:  “A truly delicious and harmonious wine. Pale gold color, very bright. The aromas bring to mind honey, almond and lemongrass (citronella). As the wine matures, intense flavors of grilled hazelnut and almonds are in evidence”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin

Description

Joseph Drouhin
Côte de Beaune Blanc

 

Vineyard Site:

  • Located in the Beaune area, above the city of Beaune.
  • The appellation Côte de Beaune is given to wines coming from vineyards located on top of the hill overlooking the city of Beaune.
  • It should not be confused with the appellation Côte de Beaune-Villages, the latter given to wines coming from several villages of the Côte de Beaune (but not Beaune itself) and blended together.

History & tradition:

  • This interesting and unusual wine comes from the estate of Joseph Drouhin on the Côte de Beaune and some declassified wine from the young vines of the famous Clos des Mouches vineyard.
  • Soil: lay and limestone. The light soil gives great finesse to the wines.
  • Drouhin estate: 2,5ha. (6.2 acres).
  • Biological cultivation since 1990; biodynamic cultivation a few years later.
  • Ageing Type: in barrels (20% in new oak).
  • Length: 12 months.

GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Chardonnay

Serving Temperature: 55°F.  Cellaring: 3 to 5 years.
