Food Pairings for Joseph Drouhin Chablis
It's hard to find a better chardonnay for the price. This one has a dry and fruity mouthfeel with an excellent aftertaste of butterscotch. I highly recommend it to fans of chardonnay.

Robert DROUHIN, on his first visit, fell in love with Chablis. Since it is now possible to control frost and to cultivate steep slopes with tractors, it became clear to Robert DROUHIN that what was happening in Côte d'Or could be successfully duplicated in Chablis. After a painstaking research involving study of ancient maps, conversations with old vignerons and tasting of old bottles from abandoned terroirs, Robert DROUHIN was able to locate the best parcels, especially those located in the valley of Vauvillien. To-day, Joseph DROUHIN owns 40 hectares (100 acres), with a sizeable portion in the Grand Crus (7 acres) and Premier Crus (17 acres). It is important to note that the Drouhin domain is strictly located within the historical boundary of the appellation. Pruning is very short in order to keep the yields as low as possible. The grapes come from three famous Premier Cru vineyards : Vaillons, Montmains and Sécher. At harvest time, the grapes are hand-picked, then carefully pressed. The juice ferments in barrels and stainless steel tanks. After 7 to 8 months of ageing, the wine is bottled. Chablis Premier Cru has very attractive and intense aromas reminiscent of coriander, orange, lemon and many other intriguing flavours. Generous, round and long on the palate, it is also full bodied with refreshing vivacity. The wine can be kept 7 to 8 years in the cellar, or even more in a good vintage. It is also pleasant at 3 or 4 years of age.
