Joseph Drouhin LaForet ChardonnayPrint
LaForêt Bourgogne Chardonnay is made with the Chardonnay grape coming from the whole of Burgundy. It is often the entry level wine leading to the great white Burgundies: to drink it provides the simple pleasures of a classic Burgundy.
History & tradition: in the 1970s, Robert Drouhin (Véronique’s father) created “the Burgundy to unveil Burgundy”. His idea: the diversity of different terroirs and the elegance of the Drouhin style. He chose grapes from parcels situated near the top of the slopes, high up, close to the forest. He is a nature lover and so called his wine “LaForêt” (the forest in French).
The name LaForêt (pronounced “La-fo-ray”) is synonymous with quality. Joseph Drouhin takes great care in selecting the various cuvées.
Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin: “Full of life! A bouquet of citrus aromas, and then we find honey and vanilla. In the mouth, it’s funky, spontaneous, striking. Really charming!.
