Explore the Drouhin Family of Wines
The philosophy of the Drouhin firm is best defined as respect of the soil, of the vine and of heritage. ...
Grapes are selected from different vineyards, generally from the Côte de Beaune. They are hand-picked and then brought to the Drouhin cellars on the outskirts of Beaune. The destemmed grapes ferment in open wooden vats or stainless steel fermenters for two-to-three weeks. Part of the wine is aged in barrels, part in stainless steel tanks, so that the wine can acquire more complexity and keep its fruitiness.

100% Pinot NoirFOOD PAIRINGS:
It is not a wine we recommend to cellar for many years. Drink it when young, up to two or three years. We suggest serving Laforet at 59° F-61° F. Easy to match with food, it will be best with assorted deli meats, poultry, white meat, "au gratin" dishes, roasted meat and soft cheese.TASTING NOTES:
"A wine full of charm: bright ruby color and a nose rich with aromas of red fruit (raspberry, red currants, wild strawberry). On the palate, the wine is pleasant, fruity and refreshing, with light tannins and great elegance". - Véronique Boss-Drouhin
