  • Gevrey-Chambertin is a wine with a beautiful, bright ruby colour. Intensely fruity on the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, wild blackberry and liquorice. The woody character is subtle and marries delicately with the other aromas. As the wine evolves, there are more complex notes, such as mild spice, nutmeg and leather. Later still, mushroom and damp earth nuances make their appearance. Although present on the palate, tannin is never astringent but blends itself harmoniously with the natural freshness and "gras" (velvety texture) of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertast
  • If you are looking to taste the best of wines from the Burgundy region, you have to try wines from the French wine label, Joseph Drouhin. The vines are grown on 90 appellations located across some of the richest terroirs in Burgundy here. Started 140 years ago, this wine label is run by the fourth generation of the Drouhin family with the same amount of dedication and passion as before.

    The Joseph Drouhin Domaine is considered as one of the largest wine estates in Burgundy. Currently, the estate comprises of 80 hectares of vineyards located in all the wine-rich areas of Burgundy. Out of these 80, 38 are found in Chablis, 38.5 hectares are found in Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune and 3.5 hectares are found in Cote Chalonnaise. A grand, 18th-century watermill, the property of Joseph Drouhin, is regarded as the headquarters of the premium Drouhin Domaine in Chablis.

    The two famous Burgundy grape varietals of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are grown in these vineyards. The estates are neatly classified into Premier and Grand Cru. Apart from growing their own grapes, Joseph Drouhin also buys grapes from other wine-growers, who are their long-standing partners. In 2008, this label created the historic “Chablis Wines,” which speak volumes about the wine’s richness and elegance of Burgundy wines.

    At this estate, organic and biodynamic winemaking practices are followed, to ensure that the wine reflects the true character of the terroirs where they are grown. No synthetic products are used in the vineyards here. Instead, natural predators and herb infusions are used to process the grapes naturally. At the vineyards of this estate, vines are planted densely. Close to 5000 vines are planted per acre, so that the plants get the maximum benefits of each type of soil where they are grown.
