new wine, new package, and a chance to win $5,000!

(New York, NY): This summer, Maison Joseph Drouhin (MJD) will debut the new Laforet Chardonnay

and Laforet Pinot Noir around the world. The wine, which will be fresher and more fruit driven in style,

is intended to speak to a younger consumer who is looking for an uncomplicated yet refined wine that

delivers tremendous quality for its price. As Veronique Drouhin puts it, “The Laforet is like a perfume,

having taken great characteristics from all of the best terroirs in Burgundy. It is a favorite of my daughter

and my friends alike because it is simply enjoyable to drink.”

MJD will celebrate the launch with a "Summer of Laforet" promotion which will include by-the-glass

specials at specially selected accounts in key markets, and a consumer Instagram contest:

#SummerOfLaforet. A Grand Prize of $5,000, with other cash prizes will be offered. More information

about the promotion, including venue's and dates, is available at www.summeroflaforet.com.

About Maison Joseph Drouhin:

Maison Joseph Drouhin is a family-owned winery founded in 1880 in Beaune, France. Since its inception,

the House style has been a celebration of elegance and finesse, as well as a tribute to the great region of

Burgundy and its world-renowned local varietals: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Today, the House is run by the fourth generation of Drouhins, with each playing a different role in the

company equation. Philippe, the eldest, is responsible for the vineyards. Since joining the house in

1988, he has introduced biological and biodynamic viticultural practices throughout the properties

which have put the company at the forefront of winemaking innovation. Veronique, the second eldest,

is considered the “guardian” of the Joseph Drouhin style, supervising the wine making process as well as

tracking the development of existing wines through daily tastings. Laurent, the next in line, is export

director for the United States, where his inherent charm and enthusiasm for wines make him an

effective brand ambassador in the family’s largest export market. Last but not least is Frederic Drouhin,

who despite being the youngest of the four siblings is the President of the company and responsible for

development and strategy. Together, they aim to continue the great tradition of winemaking that was

begun over 130 years ago.
