In the 1970s, Robert Drouhin created “the Burgundy to unveil Burgundy”. His idea: the diversity of different terroirs and the elegance of the Drouhin style. He chose grapes from parcels situated near the top of the slopes, high up, close to the forest. He is a nature lover and so called his wine “LaForêt” (the forest in French). He then set out to conquer the market and fortune favoured him.
With ripe swathes of apricot allied to touches of vanilla, this wine is full and warm. It is well balanced, with lime acidity fruitiness and a tangy aftertaste. Wine Enthusiast – 90
