Grape Variety : Chardonnay.

Vineyard :

Site: Laforêt Bourgogne Chardonnay is made with the Chardonnay grape coming from the whole of Burgundy. It is often the entry level wine leading to the great white Burgundies: to drink it provides the simple pleasures of a classic Burgundy.

History & tradition: the name Laforêt (pronounced "La-fo-ray") is synonymous with quality. Joseph Drouhin takes great care in selecting the various cuvées.

Soil: clay and limestone.

Viticulture :

Plantation density: 10,000 vine stocks/hectare.

Pruning: Guyot.

Yield: 61 hl/ha, purposely low in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir.

Vinification :

Supply: grapes and must purchased from regular suppliers.

Press: pneumatic press.

"Débourbage": decanting of white wine to reduce sediment.

Ageing :

Stainless-steel vats (7 to 8 months).
One to two year old barrels for the wines of higher provenance.

Throughout the ageing process, decisions are taken only after careful tasting evaluation. The data obtained is then 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 :

"Full of life! A bouquet of citrus aromas, and then we find honey and vanilla. In the mouth, it's funky, spontaneous, striking. Really charming!.
Aperitif "finger food"? A light (almost) improvised dinner, lunch in a trendy restaurant, LaForêt is always in right place! Its a no brainer, LaForêt is at ease everywhere and with everything or almost! Chardonnay and sushi, veggie pizza... simple things, a sign of times".

Serving :
