    Winemaker's Notes:

    Joseph Drouhin wants its LAFORET BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR to be the archetype of Burgundy.

    Grapes are selected from different vineyards, generally from the Côte de Beaune. They are handpicked and then brought to the Drouhin cellars "en Chavet", on the outskirts of Beaune.

    The destemmed grapes ferment in open wooden vats or stainless steel fermenters. The total fermentation and maceration last for about 16 days. Part of the wine is aged in barrels, part in stainless steel tanks so that the wine can acquire more complexity and keep its fruitiness.

    The hue has usually a brillant ruby-garnet colour. The nose offers effusive aromas of crushed berries (raspberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant come to mind). On the palate, the wine is full of charm and very pleasant to drink : fresh and fruity berry flavours with light and elegant tannins. The alcoholic content is generally around 12.5. There is no residual sugar.

    It is not a wine we recommend to cellar for many years. Drink it when young, up to two or three years. We suggest serving Laforet at 15°/16° C (59/61° F). Easy to match with food, it will be best with assorted delicatessen, poultry, white meat, au gratin dishes, roasted meat and soft cheese.
