EuroVintage – Drouhin and Delas

10-Dec-2012
Part of the EuroVintage international portfolio are the classical wines of Joseph Drouhin from Burgundy and the Delas wines of the Rhone. These are fully traditional, historical and established houses making benchmark styles for their regions. The breadth of range of both producers is such that there are accessible entry level wines for the market as well as the rare and prestigious grand cru and highest appellation wines. www.eurovintage.co.nz  Introductions for the brands follow:
 
Joseph Drouhin
Based in Beaune, the fourth generation house of Joseph Drouhin make wines only from the Burgundy vignoble. They are one of the largest landowners with 40 ha in Chablis and over 70 ha in the Cote d'Or.
 
Delas
This venerable Rhone firm came into Louis Roederer ownership in 1993 and with the change came an injection of investment and a revitalisation of the vineyards and winemaking. The negociant wines from the northern and southern Rhone have stepped up into the modern age and the single-vineyard offerings are now notable.
