Ever heard of the Climats? The Climats are
specific vineyard plots that have been carefully delimited for centuries. Their
geological characteristics and microclimate come together to create remarkable
wines with unique organoleptic properties. The two key grape varieties of the
region - Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
- best express their diversity
in Burgundy thanks to the combination of nature and man's experience.
From June 7th to July 7th, Burgundy is celebrating
the 4th anniversary of the UNESCO inscription of the Climats. Once more, as one
of thegreat founding sponsors of the inscription application of the Climats, Maison
Joseph Drouhin is proud to take part in this one-month-long event. Join us for a
visit of our historical cellars (12th and 15th century), followed by the
commented tasting of 8 emblematic wines of Maison Joseph Drouhin (4 whites and
4 reds). You will have the opportunity to taste and compare wines from the same
vintage, same appellation, same winemaker coming from different vine plots in
order to truly "taste" the uniqueness of each Climat. We will share
with you the origin and meaning of the name of each Climat you will be tasting,
as well as its geographic exposure and the particularities of the soil.

Chablis Premier Cru Mont de Milieu 2016
