Joseph Drouhin is a renowned wine producer based in Burgundy, France. The company was founded in 1880 and has been producing high-quality wines for over a century. One of their most famous labels is Drouhin-Vaudon Chablis, a white wine made from Chardonnay grapes grown in the Chablis region.

The Chablis region is located in the northernmost part of Burgundy and is known for its unique terroir. The soil in Chablis is composed of limestone and clay, which gives the wines a distinct minerality and acidity. The cool climate in the region also contributes to the crispness and freshness of the wines.

Drouhin-Vaudon Chablis is made using traditional winemaking techniques. The grapes are handpicked and sorted before being pressed. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature to preserve the delicate aromas and flavors of the wine. The wine is aged on its lees for several months to add complexity and texture.

The resulting wine is a pale yellow color with green highlights. On the nose, it has aromas of citrus, green apple, and white flowers. On the palate, it is crisp and refreshing with flavors of lemon, grapefruit, and a hint of minerality. The wine has a long, clean finish and is perfect for pairing with seafood, salads, and light dishes.

Drouhin-Vaudon Chablis is a classic example of the style of wine produced in the Chablis region. It is a wine that showcases the terroir and the grape variety in a pure and unadulterated way. It is a wine that is enjoyed by wine lovers all over the world and is a testament to the skill and expertise of the winemakers at Joseph Drouhin.

An elegant wine. Brilliant colour, with hints of green. Typical Chablis nose, where aromas of citrus (lemon) fern and even salty sensations predominate; it's fresh and crisp with delicious green fruits, citrus and white peach. On the palate: vigorous and lively, but in a soft mode. A lot of finesse and balance.

Founded in Beaune in 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin's cellars have spread from the historical Cellars of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Kings of France in Beaune (12th-18th centuries) to the Moulin de Vaudon, an 18th Century watermill in Chablis.

The Joseph Drouhin Domaine was assembled parcel by parcel over the years and comprises today 73 hectares (182.5 acres) of vineyards in Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune, Côte Chalonnaise and Chablis. It is one of the most important domains in Burgundy, with more than two thirds of the vineyards classified as Premier and Grand Crus.

With close to 90 different appellations, Joseph Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs in all their authenticity and subtle variations.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.

Chablis is a wine appellation located in the northernmost part of the Burgundy region in France. The region is known for producing some of the finest white wines in the world, made from the Chardonnay grape variety. The Chablis appellation covers an area of approximately 5,000 hectares, with vineyards planted on hillsides overlooking the Serein River.

The history of winemaking in Chablis dates back to the Roman era, when the region was known for producing high-quality wines. However, it was not until the Middle Ages that the wines of Chablis gained widespread recognition. In the 19th century, the phylloxera epidemic devastated the vineyards of Chablis, but the region was able to recover and rebuild its reputation as a producer of world-class wines.

The style of production in Chablis is unique, with a focus on producing wines that are crisp, mineral-driven, and expressive of their terroir. The vineyards of Chablis are planted on Kimmeridgian limestone, a type of soil that is rich in marine fossils and minerals. This soil gives the wines of Chablis their distinctive minerality and complexity.

The Chardonnay grape is the only grape variety allowed in the production of Chablis wines. The grape is known for its versatility and ability to express the terroir of the region. The wines of Chablis are typically unoaked, allowing the natural flavors and aromas of the grape and the terroir to shine through.

There are four main appellations within the Chablis region: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru, and Chablis Grand Cru. Petit Chablis is the most basic appellation, with wines that are light and refreshing, perfect for everyday drinking. Chablis is the most widely produced appellation, with wines that are crisp and mineral-driven, with notes of green apple and citrus. Chablis Premier Cru wines are more complex and full-bodied, with flavors of honey, hazelnut, and white flowers. Chablis Grand Cru wines are the most prestigious, with wines that are rich and full-bodied, with flavors of ripe fruit, honey, and toasted nuts.

In conclusion, Chablis is a unique and special wine appellation that produces some of the finest white wines in the world. The region's focus on terroir-driven winemaking, combined with the versatility of the Chardonnay grape, results in wines that are complex, mineral-driven, and expressive of their terroir. Whether you are a wine connoisseur or a casual wine drinker, a bottle of Chablis is sure to impress.
