Joseph Drouhin is one of the biggest names in Beaune and owns vineyards all over Burgundy. Founded in 1880, Drouhin has built a reputation for making wines that primarily reflect the individual terroir and vintage. They apply a balance of traditional and modern techniques and they carefully monitor the whole winemaking process from vine to wine. In 2009, they were awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage. Producing both reds and whites, their house style captures the purity of fruits with shorter aging period in oak and earlier bottling to preserve the charming fruitiness and completely reflect the terroirs in which the grapes were from. Specifically, their whites are pure, offering complete cleanliness in the palate.

The 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru comes from the two-hectares on the Puligny side, comprising five parcels vinified separately (although I tasted the final blend). It has a very pure bouquet and, especially for Drouhin, an intense bouquet of lanolin, walnut and pressed flower aromas that if anything becomes even more powerful with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with superb balance, almost symmetrical, and just the right amount of salinity. This is a vibrant, precise Montrachet with touches of sea salt and ginger toward the very persistent finish, which fans out with brio. Deeply impressive.
