MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN
The Drouhin family has been making wine in Burgundy since 1880 (and in Oregon since 1987), achieving a reputation for excellent wines from vineyards they own (domaine wines, in Burgundian parlance) and from fruit they purchase (négociant wines). That means high-quality entry-level bottles, subtle village wines for a bit more, and brilliant (albeit sometimes very pricey) premiers and grands crus.
2016 Joseph Drouhin Laforêt Bourgogne Pinot Noir
Light and bright cherry flavors make this négociant Bourgogne rouge a hard-to-argue-with everyday pour.
2015 Joseph Drouhin Côte de Beaune
Pinot Noir from different vineyards throughout the Côte de Beaune go into this satiny, raspberry-inflected red.
2016 Joseph Drouhin Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc
This seductively complex white comes from a premier cru vineyard that the Drouhins originally acquired in the 1920s.
