2018 Grand Cru Les Clos Domaine Drouhin Vaudon
The 2018 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru, which comes from 1.3ha of 37-year-old vine and sees 12 months in used barrels, has an attractive bouquet of white chocolate, almond and crushed stone, discreet white flower notes emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with lime and lemon peel, less honeyed in texture compared to the Vaudésir but with a more saline finish. Could it benefit from more tension? Maybe, but it is in keeping with the style of the vintage and is certainly well crafted. Drinking range: 2022 - 2038 Rating: 93 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Sep 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Classic overlay of stone dust but the fruit is piercing and fresh citrus. Tight, so fresh and with real elegance. Quite delicate but not weedy. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 Rating: 16.5 Julia Harding MW, www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2020)
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.
