Wines

In the 1960s, when the Chablis region had largely been abandoned as a home of quality winemaking due to phylloxera, Robert Drouhin took a leap of faith. Consequently, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been a pioneer in the Chablis region for almost 50 years, gradually expanding their vineyard holdings to 38 hectares.

Robert’s foresight meant that he was able to accrue some of the best vineyards in the area, including parcels of 4 Grand Crus (Vaudésir, Les Clos, Les Preuses and Bougros) and 7 Premier Crus. The wines are incisively expressive of these individual terroirs and the vintage.

Since the end of the 1980’s, under the impetus of Philippe Drouhin, Domaine Drouhin Vaudon adopted biodynamic cultivation, born out of a desire to limit man’s impact on nature, and is now the largest estate in Chablis embracing this method of winemaking.

Chablis Réserve de Vaudon 2017

Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Alcohol: 12.5%

Tasting Note:

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

Chablis Premier Cru ‘Vaillons’ 2017

Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Alcohol: 12.5%
Oak-ageing: Unoaked
Closure: Natural Cork

Tasting Note:

A dry and brisk wine, typical of Chablis. Brilliant yellow-green colour with green reflections. On the nose mineral and complex aromas are reminiscent of lemon and white flower, together with vegetal hints such as asparagus or artichoke and marine notes. On the palate, the first impression is clear-cut and sharp. Long on the aftertaste, with fruity as well as mineral flavours; becomes slightly honey-scented when the wine is more evolved.
