Established by Joseph in 1880, the company is still run by the Drouhin family. Over the years they have built up the Domaine to include vines in many prestigious vineyards, including many Premier and Grand Crus. They take a very gentle approach to their wine making, using biodynamics in the vineyards, whole bunch fermentation, not excessive use of new oak. The resulting wines have a fabulous reputation, and are very much in demand. Clos Saint-Denis is the smallest Grand Cru vineyard of Morey (except for the parcel of Bonnes-Mares), and was allegedly planted by the monks from the Church of Saint-Denis de Vergy at the beginning of the 13th Century. It is famed for producing aromatic and delicate Pinot Noirs.
