Chablis Vaillons Drouhin Vaudon 92 Jg 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"...excellent, as it beautifully synthesizes the ripeness of the vintage with the raciness of top flight Chablis. The bouquet offers up a beautiful mélange of lemon, apple, beeswax, stony minerality and dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and snappy, with a fine core of fruit, lovely delineation and fine length and grip on the focused and classy finish. Lovely Vaillons...92" JG 11/10 "The 2009 Chablis Vaillons emerges from the glass with generous fruit on a relatively large-scaled, big frame. It possesses wonderful mid-palate expressiveness and depth, along with textured finish framed by clean, saline notes. This is a pretty big style, but everything is in the right place...91" WA 09/11

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less
