2013 Grand Cru Vaudésir Domaine Drouhin Vaudon
A vaguely exotic character suffuses the fresh, ripe and airy aromas of sea breeze, white orchard fruit and soft petrol scents. There is a round, caressing and already relatively tender mouth feel to the light mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess reasonably good energy before terminating in a focused, lingering and moderately dry finale. Like the Bougros this could be enjoyed young if desired. 2018+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Oct 2015)

The 2013 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir was cropped on October 3 and spent 11 months in oak and tank. It is a little spicier on the nose compared to the Chablis les Clos '13: attractive chalky scents emerging with continued aeration. The palate is succinctly balanced with touches of citrus peel and a vibrant spicy finish, fanning out with careless abandon on the satisfying finish. This is a sublime Chablis Grand Cru.

Domaine Drouhin Vaudon
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.
