TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Macerated and vinified in controlled temperatures for two to three weeks, then aged in French oak barrels for 12 to 15 months, the Joseph Drouhin Rully Rouge is an aromatically expressive wine. It has a dark plum-red color, and is beautifully structured and well-balanced.

It’s refined on the nose, with notes of raspberry, gooseberry, red currant, and blackberry. With age, these aromas evolve to that of syrup and tobacco, with earthy notes. Its fresh, velvety texture is welcome and pleasing on the palate, with flavor notes of strawberry, fresh red fruit, and cherry. It’s an easy to drink red, one that will last a whole meal.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

Nothing makes this Rully shine its best more than Castaing Duck Rillettes. Enjoy with some crusty bread for appetizers. This wine also goes incredibly with grilled asparagus, escargot, and mushroom risotto. For more main course concentration, enjoy with steak au poivre, fatty fish like tuna and salmon, roast chicken, or a pork roast.

A YOUNG MAN WITH GREAT AMBITION

At the age of 22, in 1880, Joseph Drouhin settled in Beaune to found his own wine company. This young man from Chablis was brave, daring, with a good head for business, and he aimed to make great quality wines that bore his name.

It was when his son, Maurice, took over, that the House established a vineyard domaine, acquiring high quality appellations like Clos des Mouches and Clos de Vougeot. And when Maurice’s son, Robert, succeeded him in 1857, they introduced “culture raisonée,” which was to do away with pesticides and other chemicals. He was one of the first in Burgundy to do so, and he also built a laboratory dedicated to enology, and run by the first woman enologist in Burgundy, Laurence Jobard.

House Drouhin is presently run by Joseph’s great grandchildren, upholding all the values with which their ancestor built his business—a constant search for quality, and a deep appreciation for the natural elegance of Burgundy.
