In the 1970s, Robert drouhin created this "Burgundy to unveil Burgundy". His idea: showcase the diversity of different terroirs and the elegance of the Drouhin style. He chose grapes from vineyards 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).
The name LaForêt (pronounced "La-fo-ray") is synonymous with quality. Joseph Drouhin takes great care in selecting the various cuvées.
