About the Winery:

Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture. Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance. The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure. Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents. Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.

About the Vineyard:

Macon is a large terroir in the south of Burgundy, close to Pouilly-Fuissé. The size of 
this region allows considerable freedom in selecting wines with different characteristics.

Viticulture: 
• The soil is clay and chalk dating from the Jurassic era are very favorable to the cultivation of the Chardonnay grape.
• Plantation density: 7,000 vine stocks/hectare. 
• Supply: grapes and must purchased from regular suppliers (long term contracts).

Vinification:
• Pneumatic pressing, the whites go directly into vats after settling.
• Ageing: Type: the alcoholic fermentation and ageing are carried out in vats during 6 to 10 months.
• Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. 
• The data obtained is completed through technical analysis. 
• As with every other Joseph Drouhin wine, absolute priority is given to the true expression of terroir and character of the vintage.

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin
“The colour of the wine is bright and limpid. The nose is floral and fruity. Very straightforward and direct on the palate, as if biting into a grape. Fresh and light, with a very pleasant aftertaste”. 

2021 Vintage: 2021 required great technical skill as vinification had to be very precise. The whites show wonderful freshness. Carefully sculpted, the wines offer citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit. They reveal some fine balance.

 

90 Points - John Gilman, View From the Cellar:
"The 2021 Mâcon-Villages from Maison Joseph Drouhin is a lovely example of the vintage, with a vibrant and precise bouquet of lemon, pear, a touch of fresh pineapple, chalky, toasty soil tones, spring flowers and a topnote of orange zest. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and zesty, with a good core, fine soil undertow and lift and a long, wide open and bouncy finish. This is quite lovely. 2023-2030."
