Sku: 1830154*

Laforêt Bourgogne Chardonnay from Maison Joseph DROUHIN is made from 100 % Chardonnay grapes, picked by hand, coming from all over Burgundy. It derives its bouquet and taste from various "terroirs" ; its general character from Mâcon, its crispy structure from Chablis, its body from Rully, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet depending on certain vintages, and its overall nascent complexity from the young vines of Joseph Drouhin`s own "Crus".

Tasting notes
The Laforêt Burgundy white is an aromatic wine, with robust flavors and fruit, recalling the fresh grape and the green almond.

Technical notes
Site: LaForet Bourgogne Chardonnay is made with the Chardonnay grape coming from the whole of Burgundy. It is often the entry level wine leading to the great white Burgundies: to drink it provides the simple pleasures of a classic Burgundy. History & tradition: in the 1970s, Robert drouhin (Veronique’s father) created ”the Burgundy to unveil Burgundy”. His idea: the diversity of different terroirs and the elegance of the Drouhin style. He chose grapes from parcels situated near the top of the slopes, high up, close to the forest. He is a nature lover and so called his wine ”LaForet” (the forest in French). He then set out to conquer the market and fortune favoured him”. The name LaForet (pronounced ”La-fo-ray”) is synonymous with quality. Joseph Drouhin takes great care in selecting the various cuvees. Soil: clay and limestone.

Food pairing
Served chilled, it must be drunk young, as aperitif or in accompaniment of sea food, fishes, snails or smoked or cured meats
