Description

Joseph Drouhin Réserve De Vaudon Chablis is an elegant wine. Brilliant colour, with hints of green. Typical Chablis nose, where aromas of citrus (lemon) fern and even salty sensations predominate. On the palate: vigorous and lively, but in a soft mode. A lot of finesse and balance. Since the 2008 vintage, all Chablis that comes from Joseph Drouhin must also carry the name Vaudon, which comes from an old water mill on the river Serein that is owned by the family. The grapes for this Chablis come from a 6-hectare plot on the right bank of the Vauvilien Valley that is sandwiched between the Premier Cru vineyards of “Mont de Milieu” and “Montee de Tonnerre”.

Founded in 1880 by the then 22 year old Joseph Drouhin, this famous Burgundy Negociant is still family owned. Maison Joseph Drouhin owns extensive parcels throughout the region and in Chablis, extending to 73 hectares, including the world-renowned Clos des Mouches, one of the earliest purchases made by Joseph. From Montrachet Marquis de Laguiche through to Meursault and to Corton Charlemagne in the Côte de Beaune, Echezaux to Clos de Vougeot in the Côte de Nuits, the domaines produce a wide spectrum from Laforêt Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge to Grands Crus in Musigny and Chambertin. Joseph Drouhin’s foremost concern is to express the exact character of each terroir. Since 1993 they have worked their vineyards to organic and biodynamic principles, “bringing natural answers to natural problems”. The progress of every wine is meticulously monitored and recorded at every stage; they were one of the first houses in Burgundy to apply bar codes to the barrels to ensure total traceability. Every cork is stamped with Joseph Drouhin, the appellation and the vintage in order to guarantee the authenticity of the wine.
