2018 Drouhin Vaudon Chablis Premier Cru
Winemaker Notes: A dry and fruity wine, easy to drink. Its color is pale gold with greenish hues. Very fresh aromas reminiscent of citrus (lemon or grapefruit); small pleasant touches of fern or coriander are found as well. On the palate, dry and fruity, with mineral notes. Pleasant and long aftertaste.
Wine & Spirits: This wine’s green-tinged acidity makes it cool and mouthwatering, even as the flavors have some unctuous weight and leesy depths. You might find chamomile and scents of white roses as the wine lasts, pure, spicy and clean. Best Buy
Domaine Drouhin Vaudon: The Moulin de Vaudon, the property of Joseph Drouhin, is an 18th Century watermill straddling the Serein River, close to the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis. Flowing gently past hillsides covered with vineyards, the river has always been closely identified with Chablis and its region. Because of its unique location at the heart of their 38 hectare vineyard estate (95 acres), the historical watermill is the headquarters of the Drouhin Domaine in Chablis.
Joseph Drouhin, a precursor and pioneer in this great wine region for 45 years, strengthens the identity of the prestigious Chablis Domaine. Starting with the 2008 vintage, the name “Vaudon” was associated with Joseph Drouhin for all its Chablis wines as a sign of the firm’s allegiance to this historical terroir.
