2011 Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine Drouhin Vaudon

Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Chablis
Classification Grand Cru
ABV 13%
Vineyard Les Clos

Much less on the fruit than the Vaudésir, much more on stony 'silent' matter. Very full, very compact and linear. Rock water - intellectual stuff.

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price discount' for each bottle. Free mainland delivery for all orders over £100.

Fennel and spicy aroma. It attacks the palate. Proper grand cru intensity in the middle palate. There is richness and density with compact layering, plenty of matter and smooth muscle. Persistent sappy, stony finish. Very fine. From 2016/17

Concentrated and nervy on the nose. Not as concentrated as a great vintage but very solid and with lots of early maturing pleasure. Sweet start – a little sweeter than the Chablis norm. Good for airlines? 2015-2025

The 2011 Chablis Les Clos has good up-front intensity, but then loses some of its persistene on the mid-palate. Green pear, apple, mint and flowers are all woven into the expansive, delineated finish. Overall, this is a fairly straightforward Clos.


Founded in Beaune in 1880, under the name Maison Joseph Drouhin, the domaine has been built up over the years with the addition of new parcels in the Burgundy region and now comprises 73 hectares of vineyards, more than 2/3 of which are classified as Premier and Grands Crus. It is one of the largest estates in the region, and is now also the largest estate in Chablis entirely given over to biodynamic cultivation. Since 2008, the name 'Vaudron' has been associated with all Joseph Drouhin wines from the Chablis region as a sign of the firm's "allegiance to the terroir" and homage to the Moulin de Vaudron, the home of Joseph Drouhin.
