The Côte de Nuits follows a narrow strip of red iron-rich soils that run the short distance south from Dijon to the town of Nuits St Georges and ends before the hill of Corton. It is perhaps the source of the greatest and most elusive Pinot Noir wines of Burgundy. To travel through this northern half of the Côte d`Or evokes a role call of great vineyard names; Gevrey, Vosne Romanée, Clos de Vougeot, Musigny, Nuits St Georges and more.
The ancient cellars of Drouhin are located in the heart of the city of Beaune. The domaine was founded in 1880 and is still a family business, headed by Robert Douhin, grandson of the founder, Joseph Drouhin.
This Pinot Noir has a beautiful luminous ruby colour, with notes of wild cherry, liquorice and other spices on the nose. Full flavoured and rich, with soft accessible black cherry and currant flavours and an assertive rounded structure.
This perfurmed Pinot Noir is full flavoured and rich with soft, accessible black cherry and currant flavours and an assertive rounded structure.
