    Winemaker Notes

    Chablis is still a difficult region for the wine-maker. The climate is continental, hot in Summer and cold in Winter. Frosts are frequent. In spite of all these hardships, Robert Drouhin is adamant to keep the yields in his vineyards as low as possible by pruning very short. At harvest time, the grapes are hand-picked and pressed at Joseph Drouhin's own winery in Chablis. The next day, the must is brought to the cellars in Beaune and put in barrels for the alcoholic fermentation. After 8 to 9 months of ageing in oak, the wine is bottled. The wine Vaud'sir is one of the seven Grand Crus of Chablis and one of its largest, occupying a central position on the large hill overlooking the town of Chablis. A small vale, carved in the middle, gave its name to the vineyard: Val du D'sir. As a wine, Vaud'sir has a lovely, limpid, slightly green golden hue. The aromas are often reminiscent of coriander and fern, with a somewhat lemony scent. Round on the palate, it has a long, complex finish. This is a wine to keep : its ageing potential is quite good.

    Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Faithfully preserving the individuality of each appellation, the Drouhin firm constantly strives for wines of breed, finesse and elegance.

    A balance of tradition and modern techniques characterizes Joseph Drouhin winemaking and vineyard management: on site nursery, plowing, leaf removal, 100% hand harvesting, open fermenters, fermenting and aging in oak.

    As a result of its historic location deep in the heart of Beaune, the quality of its vineyards and the expertise resulting from years of experience in the cultivation of vines and traditional vinification, Maison Joseph Drouhin is uniquely placed to uphold authentic Burgundian style.

    Starting with Joseph Drouhin, who founded Maison Joseph Drouhin over a century ago, a great estate has evolved with important holdings in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis and, most recently, Oregon.

    MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN AWARDED ORGANIC CERTIFICATION Estate-grown Grapes of 2009 Vintage and later Now Officially Organic. Twenty years after Philippe Drouhin first began introducing organic practices to the vineyards making up the family company’s domaine (estate), Maison Joseph Drouhin (MJD), has been awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage.
