Joseph Drouhin Domaine de Vaudon Chablis 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Joseph DROUHIN is today a very important owner in Chablis with vines in the Grand Cru vineyards of Vaudésir, Bougros and Les Clos, as well as in these Premier Crus : Vaillons, Séchers, Roncières, Mont de Milieu and Montée de Tonnerre. Nestled between these last two Premier Crus is the Vallée de Vauvillien, entirely owned by Joseph DOUHIN. ® After many years of closely following, studying and tasting the wines of his estate, Robert DROUHIN realized that the moment had come to produce a Chablis of great breed and finesse from the best parcels : Domaine de Vaudon. The vines are pruned short so as to have low yield. In keeping with the time honoured Chablis tradition, berries are pressed very gently, the fermentation is as slow as possible ; the wine is the left to age a few months in oak barrels. Domaine de Vaudon is a Chablis of great elegance and finesse. A luminous greenish hue, floral aromas with a touch of spice and a light and balanced concentration, all spell Chablis at its highest level of quality.

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.
