Aroma

A dry and fruity wine, easy to drink. Very fresh aromas reminiscent of citrus (lemon or grapefruit); small pleasant touches of fern or coriander are found as well.

Palate

The wine is dry and fruity on the palate and has beautiful mineral notes. Pleasant and long aftertaste.

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 site is near the hill of the Grands Crus of Chablis is the Valley of Vauvillien, partly owned by Maison Joseph Drouhin. This valley looks like a corridor of vines planted on an exceptional terroir: the slopes are steep and the soil is made up of the famous Kimmeridge limestone with its fossilized oyster shells.

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.
