Joseph Drouhin Chablis France 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Good pale yellow. Soil-inflected nose offers flint, smoke, minerals, quinine and dusty stone, plus notes of white pepper and snap pea that reminded me of gruner veltliner. Sappy, classic and backward, with a distinctly tactile quality to the flavors of powdered stone and citrus peel. Much less showy today than the Vaudesir but not at all hard. This really dusts the palate.

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.

Ripe, with a viscous texture framing peach and floral notes. This is slightly heavy, with a grapefruit peel note on the finish and discreet flavors. Drink now through 2012. 3,000 cases imported. -BS Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2006 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Chablis les Clos 750ml

Very fresh, high-pitched aromas of flowers and minerals. More intense and sharply focused than the Vaudesir but locked up tight today and showing less volume and texture. But wonderfully pure and classy on the vibrant, palate-dusting finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Chardonnay wine from Burgundy in France. 2006 Domaine Joseph Drouhin Chablis les Clos 750ml
