Cote de Beaune (2017) Joseph Drouhin

New

A true delight and a great harmony! A beautiful purple colour. On the nose, delicate and fruity aromas such as strawberry and red currant. On the palate, the tannins are refined and lend a nice roundness to the body. Elegant aftertaste

    Vintage

    As every year we sorted the grapes at once to select the most beautiful bunches that were to be kept in whole clusters and to remove berries that could present a lack of maturity. The sanitary state was very satisfactory with almost no rot. Very quickly at the beginning of the fermentations the colours were released and gradually the varietal character of Pinot Noir was expressed. We favoured this aromatic expression to look for balanced wines without too much power. The tannins are nicely melted, the acidity levels from normal to low. The fermentations and macerations lasted about 3 weeks. In the course of the winter, the malolactic fermentations were triggered and proceeded sometimes rather quickly. The Côte de Beaune has very nice wines with a good concentration.

    Vinification

    Harvesting: by hand, in small open crates in order to preserve the integrity of the fruit.
    Sorting of the grapes: in the vineyard and at the cuverie (winery) if necessary.
    Maceration:

    • maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks
    • indigenous yeasts
    • maceration and fermentation temperatures under total control

    Joseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance to a wine but should never be detrimental to its finesse and typical character.
    "Pigeage" (punching down of the cap during fermentation): once a day until half of fermentation is done; one pumping over ("remontage") per day till the end of the fermentation.
    Pressing: separation of free run juice from pressed juice.
