Joseph Drouhin Côte de Beaune 2020 Blanc
Pairs with: Seared sesame tuna
Good for: Taking to the raw bar
I am from: Burgundy, France
The Story: By focusing on wine quality and respecting the diversity of Burgundy's vineyards, quickly combining the roles of négociant, producer, and above all, owner, the house quickly made a name for itself in the world. The generations of Drouhin succeeded each others, strengthening the House's reputation through the acquisition of numerous prestigious plots all over Burgundy. Guided by the revelation of these magical terroirs, unwavering ethics, and the distinctive Drouhin style characterized by finesse and elegance. Now run by the great-grandchildren of Joseph, the family has expanded it estate to include parcels in Oregon, but Burgundy is still at the heart of its operations and philosophy.
Why You'll Love Me: A truly delicious and harmonious wine -- pours a pale gold colour, very bright. The aromas bring to mind honey, almond and lemongrass (citronella). As the wine matures, intense flavours of grilled hazelnut and almonds are in evidence.
