Burgundy ‘Climats' Tasting
The ‘Climats' are precise parcels of land, which benefit from particular geological and weather conditions unique to each place. Coming from noble varieties; Chardonnay for the white wines and Pinot Noir for the red wines, these parcels, combined with the skill of man, have given birth to an exceptional hierarchy and mosaic of appellations, which are known and recognized throughout the world.
From the 23rd to the 31st of May 2015 will the held the ‘week of the Climats of Burgundy'. The Maison Joseph Drouhin, in our capacity as one of the original founding patrons for the candidacy of the classification of the Burgundy ‘Climats' as a Unesco World Heritage site, will be glad to be participating in this event. We will be organizing a visit of our 13th and 15th century cellars, followed by the commented tasting of 6 emblematic wines of our house. (3 whites and 3 reds).
This selection is made up of wines that come from single and unique parcels, representative of their ‘climat'. The faithful expression of the different soil types, the attentiveness to, and the respect of nature are values which are dear to the heart of our house, and reflect the choice of organic and biodynamic agriculture practiced in our vineyards. The care taken with our vines, allows the full and true expression of the typicity of each ‘climat', which is then expressed in the wine. Following the visit of our cellars, the following wines will be tasted:
Chablis Grand Cru "Vaudésir" 2011
Chassagne 1er cru "Clos St Jean" 2011
Meursault 1er cru "Les Perrières" 2011
Savigny-les-Beaune "Clos des Godeaux" 2011
Morey-St-Denis 1er cru "Clos Sorbé" 2010
Beaune 1er cru "Clos des Mouches" 1996
We will explain the characteristics of each parcel; the origins of the name, the particularities of the soil and the geographical location. All that remains is for you to enjoy the finesse, and the unique expression of our Burgundy terroir.
