- North of Nuits-Saint-Georges, the village of Vosne-Romanée produces some of the best-known wines of Burgundy, Romanée Conti and Richebourg being the most famous.
- The clay and limestone soils are particularly well-suited to the production of great red wines.
- The unique grape variety used is the Pinot Noir.
- At Joseph Drouhin, we want all of our wines to be the best expression of their terroir, which is why typicity is very important.
- Grapes are picked by hand. Fermentation is traditionally in open wooden fermenters, then the young wine then stays in barrels for an average of 18 months before being bottled.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
FOOD PAIRINGS: Pinot Noir is well-suited to pair with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamb and pork. It will play well with creamy sauces, spicy seasonings and may just be one of the world’s most versatile food wines.
TASTING NOTES: “Supreme elegance! Beautiful color, with intense and bright reflections. The diversity of the aromas is striking: wild cherry, nutmeg, camphor wood, fine leather. Later on, the wine takes on a subtle aroma of truffle, producing the most varied palette. With its perfect balance between tannin and acidity, the wine has a fleshy, sturdy body. Powerful and long aftertaste. A wealth of harmonious sensations characterizes this great Burgundy.” – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
