Winemaker Notes

A dry and brisk wine, typical of Chablis. Brilliant yellow-green color. The aromas are reminiscent of lemon, citrus, asparagus...On the palate, the first sip offers is clear-cut and fresh impression, with a nice texture. Long on the aftertaste, with fruity as well as mineral flavors; becomes slightly honeyed when the wine is more evolved.

Food Pairing: As an aperitif, or with shellfish such as oysters, crabmeat, lobster, or with smoked salmon and grilled fish.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
A blend from four estate vineyards cultivated organically since 1990 and under biodynamics since 1999, this captures the pure Chablisenne essence of limestone. The pale marine earthiness is balanced by succulent fresh apple flavor, deepened by leesy scents of roasted hazelnuts and gingery spice. It's broad rich and toasty, a complex young wine that will only gain with bottle age.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
A toasty and buttery wine that is initially smooth and silky. It's only on the mid-palate that the tauter, more steely character of Chablis comes through. with fresh acidity, this easily combines both ripeness and mouthwatering crispness.

Domaine Drouhin Vaudon, France
Domaine Drouhin Vaudon Winery Image
The Moulin de Vaudon, the property of Joseph Drouhin, is an 18th Century watermill straddling the Serein River, close to the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis. Flowing gently past hillsides covered with vineyards, the river has always been closely identified with Chablis and its region. Because of its unique location at the heart of their 38 hectare vineyard estate (95 acres), the historical watermill is the headquarters of the Drouhin Domaine in Chablis.

Joseph Drouhin, a precursor and pioneer in this great wine region for 45 years, strengthens the identity of the prestigious Chablis Domaine. Starting with the 2008 vintage, the name "Vaudon" was associated with Joseph Drouhin for all its Chablis wines as a sign of the firm's allegiance to this historical terroir.

The source of the most racy, light and tactile, yet uniquely complex Chardonnay, Chablis, while considered part of Burgundy, actually reaches far past the most northern stretch of the Côte d’Or proper. Its vineyards cover hillsides surrounding the small village of Chablis about 100 miles north of Dijon, making it actually closer to Champagne than to Burgundy. Champagne and Chablis have a unique soil type in common called Kimmeridgian, which isn’t found anywhere else in the world except southern England. A 180 million year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, spans from the Dorset village of Kimmeridge in southern England all the way down through Champagne, and to the soils of Chablis. This soil type produces wines full of structure, austerity, minerality, salinity and finesse.

Chablis Grands Crus vineyards are all located at ideal elevations and exposition on the acclaimed Kimmeridgian soil, an ancient clay-limestone soil that lends intensity and finesse to its wines. The vineyards outside of Grands Crus are Premiers Crus, and outlying from those is Petit Chablis. Chablis Grand Cru, as well as most Premier Cru Chablis, can age for many years.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
