Generations later and Robert, Veronique, Frederic, Laurent and Philippe run the fin Burgundy House.Joseph Drouhin’s wines are produced with an organic and biodynamic approach and they are regarded for their classical styling.

"One of the greatest wines of Burgundy, to be tasted with awe and reverence. It has an intense golden hue. On the nose, there are some subtle tones of rose, fresh almond, citrus, honey, exotic wood and spice. Majestic and well balanced on the palate. Generous and lively at the same time. Intense and complex aftertaste. All the aromas mingle and linger for quite a long time afterwards. A wine of undeniable majesty". - Véronique Boss-Drouhin
