DROUHIN CHABLIS RESERVE DE VAUDON 2018 13.5% 37.5CL
Grape Variety : Chardonnay. Vineyard Site: Joseph Drouhin owns around 6 hectares of vines (15 acres) in the Valley of Vauvillien, nestled between the Mont de Milieu and Montée de Tonnerre Premier Cru vineyards. The name "Moulin de Vaudon" comes from the watermill nearby, owned by the Drouhin family and straddling the Serein River History & tradition: in the sixties, when the Chablis vineyards were all but abandoned, Robert Drouhin recognized the potential of this region which had been ravaged by the phylloxera disease a century before. He was one of the first Burgundy propriétaires who set about revitalizing the area. Soil: the Kimmeridgian limestone contains millions of tiny marine fossils embedded in a kind of whitish mortar which may have been once the bottom of the sea...hundreds of million years ago. This marine origin gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavour. Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin "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". Harvesting: by hand. Pressing: very slow so as to respect the fruit. Juices from the last pressings are not retained.
