Winery Notes:
Laforet Bourgogne Chardonnay from Maison Joseph Drouhin is made from 100 percent Chardonnay grapes, picked by hand, coming from all over Burgundy. It derives its bouquet and taste from various "terroirs"; its general character from Macon, its crispy structure from Chablis, its body from Rully, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet, and its overall nascent complexity from the young vines of Joseph Drouhin's own "Crus". It is often the entry-level wine leading to the great white Burgundies. To drink it provides the simple pleasures of a classic Burgundy.

Stainless-steel vats (7 to 8 months). One to two year old barrels for the wines of higher provenance. Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is then completed through technical analysis. As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.

TASTING NOTE BY VÉRONIQUE BOSS-DROUHIN - “Fruity and full of life. This is a classical white Burgundy and a good entry level wine for Burgundy in general. The colour is golden yellow, with a greenish glint. The aromas are reminiscent of fresh grape and green almond. Elegant texture”.
