|Tasting notes||Good structure when young, without any harshness. The nose is powerful, with aromas of candied fruit. As the wine ages, spice and musk are in evidence. A good Corton has a velvety texture ("gras") to counterbalance tannin and acidity. It is very persistent on the palate and ages well.|
Founded in 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin cellars have spread from the historical cellars of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Kings of France in Beaune (12th-18th century) to the Moulin de Vaudon (an 18th century watermill), close to the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis.
Self-imposed discipline, a desire to learn, a deep sense of values, passion and daring are the qualities that have been handed down through the generations, together with the art of winemaking and an unfailing sense of quality. Today, the fourth generation of the Drouhin family, headed by Frédéric Drouhin, is now at the helm. Each of them has his role to play in imposing the family "Charter of Excellence".
