Description

The minerality and aromatic expression of a white wine from Mâcon-Lugny

The estate

For four generations, Domaine Joseph Drouhin has been a must-know reference among fine Burgundy wines. Founded in 1880 by Joseph Drouhin, who was 22 years old at the time, the estate has expanded over the years and has reached its current size of 80 hectares. The vines spread over renowned appellations (Beaune, Bonnes-Mares, Chassagne-Montrachet, Clos Vougeot, Corton-Charlemagne, Grands-Echezeaux, Pouilly-Fuissé, etc.).

Since 1957, this family of precursors has advocated respect for the terroir and the environment both regarding the vineyard management and the production of their fine wines.

The red and white wines of Domaine Joseph Drouhin authentically express the mosaic and richness of the Burgundian terroirs. They are renowned for their elegance, their intense fruity aromas and their gourmet complexity.

The vineyard

Joseph Drouhin's "Les Crays" 2021 is a Mâcon-Lugny wine made from a vineyard located at an altitude of 300 meters on clay-limestone soil. Located around 30 km north of Pouilly-Fuissé, this terroir takes its name from the Celtic era. Meaning "stony hill", the Celtic term "cracos" refers to the stony scree and alluvial fans that contribute to the uniqueness of this soil.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are gently pressed. The juice from the last press is not included in the making of this wine. Aged for 6 to 8 months in stainless steel vats.

The blend

Chardonnay (100%).
