Joseph Drouhin was born in Chablis and settled in Beaune as a young man, where he founded his négotiant business ‘Maison Joseph Drouhin’ in 1880 at the age of 22. His son, Maurice inherited the business and started purchasing select vineyard plots in some of Burgundy’s best neighborhoods like Clos des Mouches and Clos de Vougeot. Maurice’s son, Robert, took over in 1957 and over time continued to expand the Drouhin vineyard holdings to the 73 hectares the domaine encompasses today. In 2008, the Drouhin Chablis operation became known as Domaine de Vaudon, named for the ‘Moulin de Vaudon’ the 18th century watermill that straddles the Serein River at the heart of their property. Pure and limpid colour, with a faint greenish hint. On the nose, fresh aromas of flower and fruit (lemony flavours) and, at times, spicy notes of coriander. On the palate: harmonious aromas bringing character and elegance. The magnitude of its Grand Cru origin and the light salty notes from the Kimmeridgian soil are in evidence. Remarkably long and complex persistence in the aftertaste.
