    Cuvée presentation

    Corton is the Côte de Beaune's only red Grand Cru. It gained fame quickly around the world as a wine which travels well; it is grown in a well-drained terroir and needs to sink its roots very deep, which is probably what lends it its character. Les Bressandes is produced from vines which have an average age of over 35 years. This wine is rather robust in its youth; it is worth waiting before drinking it. It presents a nose of candied fruit, developing into spicy and musky notes. It has the necessary richness and freshness necessary to balance out a very robust structure, and great persistence.

    Information about domain Joseph Drouhin (domaine)

    In 1880 Joseph Drouhin founded the eponymous wine merchant, but it was his son, Maurice, who after the First World War, started to buy some of the good parcels around Beaune, including the famous Clos des Mouches. Maurice's nephew, Robert, continued his uncle's good work and expanded the domain in to certain prestigious terrroirs, such as Musigny, Griotte-Chambertin, Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, Bonnes Mares, Grands Échézeaux, etc. A pioneer in vinification methods, he was one of the first winemakers in Burgundy to move towards sustainable farming principles: limited fertilisers and treatments, yield management, etc. The Joseph Drouhin house has been managed by Robert Drouhin's four children since 2003. This famous house in Beaune is internationally renowned and consists of 72 hectares of vineyard, divided in to 26 ha of red and 46 ha of white. It spreads from north to south between Chablis (38 hectares), Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune (30 hectares). In 1987 the Domaine also acquired vines in Orégon.
