With all the hype attributed to Bordeaux, Burgundy still remains the most complex and intellectual of France's dreamland of wine-making. What is lacked in varietal blending, as only two grapes are used - Pinot and Chardonnay, is made up for by the 'terroir' - the expression of geological and climatic conditions, which can vary so dramatically over as little as ten or twenty yards within a single vineyard.
The "Joseph Drouhin style" marries balance, harmony, finesse and character. The wines are recognizable for their great purity of taste. Young, they possess fruity and enticing aromas; with age, wines from great vineyards/appellations acquire a sumptuous complexity.
