Overview

Appellation: Appellation Chablis Controlée.

By mid-September, the weather in Burgundy turned extraordinary and allowed harvesting to take place under ideal conditions. The quality level is high - and in Chablis even exceptional. We are quite confident to say that 2008 is one of the greatest vintage of the past 25 years. All the wines from Chablis show concentration, richness, freshness, minerality and intense aromas.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale gold with greenish hues.

Aroma

Very fresh aromas reminiscent of citrus (lemon or grapefruit); small pleasant touches of fern or coriander are found as well.

Palate

On the palate, this wine is dry and fruity, with mineral notes. Pleasant and long aftertaste. Easy to drink.

Food Matching

Excellent served as an apertif or with seafood, such as oysters, sea shells (of course!) and fish.

Cellaring Potential

Although very pleasant and seductive when young, we recommend drinking the Chablis within to 4 or 5 years.

Vineyard

This is the northernmost region of Burgundy, located in a dramatic circle of hills where vines have been planted for hundreds of years. The Kimmeridgian limestone contains millions of tiny marine fossils embedded in a kind of whitish mortar which may have been once the bottom of the sea...hundreds of million years ago. This marine origin gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavour.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Drouhin is one of Burgundy’s top-level negociants. More importantly it is one of Burgundy’s finest Domaines, owning some 25.9 hectares of vineyards from Puligny to Gevrey and 37.7 hectares in Chablis.

The Domaine plants 12,500 vines per ha - one of the highest densities in Burgundy - which encourages root-systems to delve deeper to compete for nutrients. "Those who love the Cote d’Or and its wines have much to thank Drouhin for." Remington Norman, The Great Domaines of Burgundy, 2000.
