Founded in 1880 by the then 22 year old Joseph Drouhin, this famous Burgundy Negociant is still family owned. Now in the 4th generation, Maison Joseph Drouhin owns extensive parcels throughout the region and in Chablis. Continuing the work started by the young Joseph Drouhin, the family domaines extending to some 73 hectares have been 100% organic since 1993 and the Chablis properties, based at the enchanting Moulin de Vaudon have been run on biodynamic principles since 1998.
Of the current generation Veronique Drouhin is the wine-maker, Laurent is the brand ambassador in the USA, where he now lives, Philippe is in charge of the vineyards whilst Frederic "conducts the orchestra". All continue in the tradition of the founder, Joseph.
Amongst the famous Crus owned by the family is the world-renowned Clos des Mouches, one of the earliest purchases made by Joseph. This property produces very fine white and red which far transcends the Beaune appelation it bears.
From Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche through Meursault to Corton Chalemagne in the Co?te de Beaune, Echezaux to Clos de Vougeot in the Co?te de Nuits the domaines produce a wide spectrum from the Lafore?t Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge to Grands Crus in Musigny and Chambertin.
Pol Roger Portfolio are proud to present a wide range on a DPD basis in addition to the wonderful array available on an ex cellars basis.
