The domain is currently managed by the fourth generation Drouhin under biodynamic precepts and achieving the maximum expression of each terroir.
Joseph Drouhin Pommard comes from prestigious vineyards south of Beaune. Old vines planted in clay and limestone soils which are cultivated with organic treatments and limiting production to 44 hl/ ha. When the Pinot Noir variety reaches its optimum moment of ripening, it’s harvested by hand.
Once the Joseph Drouhin Pommard grapes have been crushed, they macerate and ferment with native yeasts for 2 to 3 weeks under temperature control. Daily treading and pump-overs are carried out until the end of fermentation and then it’s pressed. Finally, the wine ages in used French oak barrels for 14 - 18 months.
Ambassador winery for Burgundy and the Pinot Noir variety, Joseph Drouhin Pommard is an obvious example of the freshness and finesse which so characterizes these wines.
