Joseph Drouhin Vaudon Chablis 2017

Member Review by zufrieden:

Perhaps drinking this a tad early, but the rewards remain: this number has more structure, acidity and character than the 2008. The very good 2009 vintage shows through with good soft fruit on the nose but still dominated by that usual granny smith apple and kiwi. This is a tart, age-worthy wine with considerable more pedigree than its generic Chablis would normally recommend; there is refreshing, cleansing malic-like acid on the palate with just enough fat to allow for the balance that this reviewer merits most. Highly recommended for the price. Buy a case.

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.

Im Bouquet offenbaren sich reintönige, fruchtige Aromen (Äpfel, Grapefruit), aber auch mineralische Noten und ganz feine Anklänge an Blumen. Der Ausbau im kleinen Eichenfass (Pièce) erhöht seine Komplexität und Ausgewogenheit. Es ist ein klassischer Weisswein, der durch Gradlinigkeit und sensorischer Einheit brilliert. Die aromatische Nachhaltigkeit, die filigrane, fruchtige Struktur, der erfrischende Körper und die Konsistenz verleihen diesem Chablis eine besondere Note. Das Finale ist sehr ausgeprägt und spiegelt die reichhaltigen Eindrücke in konzentrierter Form wieder.

Wine Tasting NotesIt 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.

Dieser sorgfältig gekelterte Chablis trägt die Handschrift der jüngsten Generation der Drouhins. Ein starker Beschnitt der Reben bringt kleine Erträge, die von Hand gelesen, sachte gepresst und langsam vergoren werden. Die Qualität des Traubenguts aus dem Familienbesitz zwischen den ausgezeichneten Premier Cru-Lagen MONT DE MILIEU und MONTÉE DE TONNERRE sorgt für einen charaktervollen, tiefgründigen Chablis. Im Bouquet bezaubern reintönige, fruchtige Aromen (Äpfel, Grapefruit), aber auch mineralische Noten und ganz feine Anklänge an Gewürze und Blumen (Veilchen). Der Ausbau im kleinen Eichenfass (Pièce) verleiht diesem Chablis Komplexität und Ausgewogenheit. Es ist ein klassischer Weisswein, der durch Gradlinigkeit und sensorischer Einheit brilliert. Das Finale ist sehr ausgeprägt und spiegelt die reichhaltigen Eindrücke in konzentrierter Form wieder.
