Burgundy's Robert Drouhin Named Distinguished Service Award Winner

From the Sep 30, 2013, issue

Robert Drouhin is the recipient of Wine Spectator's Distinguished Service Award (DSA) for 2013. As the head of Maison Joseph Drouhin from 1957 to 2003, he developed the company, founded by his grandfather in 1880, into one of Burgundy's most important négociants. He also acquired vineyards in the Côte d'Or and Chablis, increasing the estate portion of Joseph Drouhin to its current 180 acres. The name Drouhin is synonymous with the Burgundy region, and Robert Drouhin is the first Burgundian to be awarded the DSA.
