Horizontal tasting

 

Come and join us to participate in this tour that will take you through the cellars of Joseph Drouhin and the Oenothèque where we have around seventy references including old vintages and large formats for sale. 

In addition to its benchmark as a wine producer, it is also a real historical journey during the visit through the cellars owned by the Drouhin family. 

Indeed, these cellars are part of the oldest of Beaune dating between the 13th and 15th centuries ; this is what makes all the magic of this emblematic location. 

The visit will end by a special tasting, do you know what a horizontal tasting is? The principle is simple, it allows us to compare different wines of the same year. This allows to discover the characteristics of a vineyard, a terroir, a grape variety without having differences due to the weather over different years. 

For our tasting we will discover 8 wines from the 2011 vintage :

 

4 white wines:

Chablis Grand cru "Les Clos"

Meursault En Luraule

Puligny-Montrachet

Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Morgeot"

 

And 4 red wines:

Beaune 1er Cru "Grèves"

Morey Saint-Denis 1st Cru "Clos Sorbè"

Gevrey Chambertin 1st Cru "Lavaux Saint-Jacques"

"Clos de la Roche" Grand Cru


Programme :

The tour starts at 10.00 am and will depart at the Oenothèque, Place du Général Leclerc in Beaune. 

The visit of the cellar lasts about 30 minutes, and then we will continue with the tasting of the 8 wines.
