Joseph Drouhin Vosne-Romanée 2012
The village of Vosne-Romanée is located just north of Nuits-Saint-Georges, and produces some of the best-known wines of Burgundy. The clay and limestone soils are particularly well-suited to the production of great Pinot Noir and Romanée Conti and Richebourg are the most famous vineyard sites. At Joseph Drouhin, Vosne-Romanée is a speciality in the portfolio, exuding the very best expression of its terroir. The grapes are picked by hand. Fermentation is traditionally in open wooden fermenters. The young wine then stays in barrels for an average of 18 months before being bottled. 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.
The Drouhin family has been making fine Burgundy since 1880. Renowned winemaker Véronique Boss-Drouhin speaks about this Vosne-Romanée : '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
