Overview

Appellation: Beaujolais-Villages A.C.

Although Beaujolais is part of "Greater Burgundy", it differs from Burgundy in many respects. Out of the 35,000 hectares of gamay planted throughout the world, 22,000 hectares are in the Beaujolais area, spread over 38 villages.

Maison Joseph Drouhin has always had a special affinity for this area and, since their pioneering work in the early fifties, has assiduously promoted it around the world. Made from grapes harvested in villages celebrated for the quality of their terroir and micro-climate, this wine represents, vintage after vintage, the true spirit of the Beaujolais-Villages appellation.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Drouhin is one of Burgundy’s top-level negociants. More importantly it is one of Burgundy’s finest Domaines, owning some 25.9 hectares of vineyards from Puligny to Gevrey and 37.7 hectares in Chablis.

The Domaine plants 12,500 vines per ha - one of the highest densities in Burgundy - which encourages root-systems to delve deeper to compete for nutrients. "Those who love the Cote d’Or and its wines have much to thank Drouhin for." Remington Norman, The Great Domaines of Burgundy, 2000.
