Joseph Drouhin Cote de Beaune 2012


SKU 31545


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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cote de Beaune was picked between September 20 and 28, and as well as Cote de Beaune fruit, the blend includes declassified barrels of village and premier cru. It has a simple dark cherry, red currant and pomegranate bouquet with crisp delineation and fine clarity for such a modest wine. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy, red currant and pomegranate fruit with a touch of spice on the brittle finish. Fine - what you might call a "breezy" entry-level Pinot.
