Joseph Drouhin Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2020

Burgundy, FranceDrouhin selects a dozen appellations for this pinot noir, off clay and limestone soils, and planted to a density of 10,000 vines per hectare. This is about as elegant as it gets for Bourgogne, and it comes with some freshness, a far cry from how this category was presented in the 80s, 90s and 00s. It is all aged in stainless steel vats for 7 to 8 months, while wines of higher origin can spend time in one to two year old barrels. Expect a soft, charming, earthy, juicy pinot with silky tannin and an elegance that punches above its appellation.Tasted: 26 February 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
