History & tradition: the Gauls from the village of Vaona were drafted to serve in the army of Caesar for a period of 20 years. As a reward, the Emperor granted them vineyards, some of which were named ”Romanee” by the following generations.
Soil: chalky marl with excellent drainage and exposure ideally suited to the Pinot Noir grape.
|In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name. Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew. At the same time, the founder’s passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage.
