Grape: 100% Chardonnay sourced from regular, long term growers. 45ha/ha yield from densely planted vines. No added yeast or enzymes during fermentation. Ageing in barrel (25% new wood) for 12 months.

Maison Joseph Drouhin is a 140 year old family firm which is now committed to only using organic and biodynamic methods for all their wines.

Rich golden colour with vanilla, honey and pears on the nose, nice almondy, vanilla flavours on the palate with style and elegance to finish.

"At first sight, the wine is a perfect illustration of its place name. It is worthy of the wonderful Meursault whose colour is golden without being yellow. The nose, concentrated and elegant, full without being heady, evokes aromas of almond, warm bread just taken out of the oven, hot croissant, then, fine spice and finally grilled dried fruit. The flavours are at the same refined level as the aromas. The body is round without being heavy; the acidity is well integrated and is never biting. The texture feels like silk without the alcohol ever being dominant. The wine develops on the palate and opens up fully until the very long aftertaste brings back some of the precious aromas felt in the bouquet: almond paste and hot brioche". Tasted by the producer, Veronique Boss-Drouhin

"Cask sample. Gorgeous aroma of creamed pears. Bone dry but broad across the palate. Deeply, firmly textured. Lovely wine with a long future even with moderate acidity." 17/20 points, Julia Harding MW,, January 2019

Also rated 91/100 points by Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

The aromatic power and exceptional balance allows the wine to be paired with fine textured fish or meat, veal or poultry in a white sauce, grilled seafood and blue cheeses.
