The Joseph Drouhin Côtes de Nuits Villages is a faithful expression of the terroir of the Côte de Nuits region. Created from a delicious mixture of Pinot Noir grapes collected from vineyards in several small villages in the south of the appellation: Corgoloin, Comblanchien, Premeaux, Brochon and Couchey.
