Grape variety

Gamay and Pinot Noir


Site: the appellation « Coteaux Bourguignons » is grown over the four « départements » composing the Great Burgundy area, from Auxerrois to Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Côte Chalonnaise and Beaujolais. 

History & tradition: the appellation « Coteaux Bourguignons » was created in 2011. It is the 101th appellation in Burgundy.
Our red « Coteaux Bourguignons » is resulting from the blend of pinot noir and gamay.
The range of terroirs and the fact of blending two grape varieties produce a fruity wine, fresh, lively, and extremely pleasant in its youth.

Soil: clay and limestone for Pinot Noir and granite for Gamay.



by Véronique Boss-Drouhin

Rich wine, full of charm. Bright red ruby colour. The nose develops rich flavours of small red fruits: raspberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant and some delicate hints of vanilla. On the palate, it is full of charm, aromatic, well-balanced with round tannins and a very pleasant aftertaste.


2019 holds the promise of the great Burgundian vintages ending in 9. The great maturity has given ample and silky wines.  They are charming and full of delicacy. A great vintage.

Vintage review


Supply: this wine comes from grapes and musts purchased from supply partners according to rigorous specifications.

Harvest: grapes harvested by hands in open-work crates. If necessary, a careful sorting is proceeded.

Vinification: total destemming. 1 to 2 weeks of maceration and fermentation. Indigenous yeasts or yeasting. Vertical or pneumatic pressing.

Ageing: it remains mixed with 15 to 20% of new oak barrels.
The ageing lasts between 10 to 14 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.
