The first plantings of Pinot Noir in Burgundy probably go back to 150 BC. Laforêt Bourgogne rouge, made 100% with this famous grape, is the archetype of red Burgundy for Joseph Drouhin.
in the 1970s, Robert drouhin (Véronique's father) created "the Burgundy to unveil Burgundy". His idea: the diversity of different terroirs and the elegance of the Drouhin style. He chose grapes from parcels situated near the top of the slopes, high up, close to the forest. He is a nature lover and so called his wine "LaForêt" (the forest in French). He then set out to conquer the market and fortune favoured him".
The name LaForêt (pronounced "La-fo-ray") is synonymous with quality. Joseph Drouhin takes great care in selecting the various cuvées.
