Wonderfully gentle attack, but absolutely no lack of precision. Pure crystalline rock-juice. Bravo! The Drouhin Chablis domaine was converted to organics in 1996, oenologist Jérôme Faure-Brac has been working on picking earlier here, and the use of barrel has been made more subtle, five to six months in demi-muids, with no new wood.

Lemon yellow, floral/honeyed, showing all Vaudesir's suppleness and elegance with a tight structure for ageing. Drink 2011-17. (18 points) Rating: ****18 Steven Spurrier(Feb 2010)

Lifted, floral and intense aromatics. Svelte, ripe citrus fruit on the attack. Pure, elegant and very streamlined palate woven with cool minerality. It is long and flowing; intense, but graceful with a touch of white flowers. It is threaded with polished minerality on the long finish. A grand cru with finesses. Very fine.

Domaine Drouhin Vaudon

The Beaune-based merchant Joseph Drouhin has restyled its Chablis Domaine 'Domaine Drouhin-Vaudon' to emphasise its ties with and holdings in (38 hectares) the Chablis vineyard. The Moulin de Vaudon, an 18th Century watermill straddling the Serein River, close to the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis, is the headquarters and the source of the name. It is the largest estate in Chablis entirely farmed biodynamically.
