Chablis Reserve

Tasting note by Véronique Boss-Drouhin:

  • An elegant wine. Brilliant color, with hints of green.
  • Typical Chablis nose, where aromas of citrus (lemon) fern and even salty sensations predominate.
  • On the palate: vigorous and lively, but in a soft mode.
  • A lot of finesse and balance.

Serving Temperature: 52/53°F.

Cellaring: 1 to 7 years.

Description

Drouhin Vaudon
Chablis Reserve De Vaudon

 

Soil:

    • The Kimmeridgian limestone contains millions of tiny marine fossils embedded in a kind of whitish mortar which may have been once the bottom of the sea…hundreds of million years ago.
    • This marine origin gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavor.
    • Drouhin estate: 27.3 ha. (68.25 acres).
    • Average age of the vines: 24 years.

Viticulture:

    • Biological cultivation since 1990 and biodynamic cultivation since 1999.
    • Soil maintenance: age-old methods. Ploughing: “buttage” (hilling up around the vine-stocks) in autumn; “débuttage” (ploughing back in spring); work between the rows and the vine stocks done with manual tools only.
    • Treatment: only authorized products for biological cultivation are used – infusions and macerations of plant materials, sulfur and copper, powdered rock.
    • Natural predators are not eliminated.
    • Plantation density: 6,250 stocks/ha.
    • Pruning: double Guyot “Vallée de la Marne” (for its resistance to frost).
    • Yield: we aim for a lower yield, such as it existed before the new law. This yield is therefore the present maximum yield minus 20%.
    •  Average yield at the Domaine: 55.13hl/ha (the yield currently authorized for the appellation is now 60hl/ha).

Vinification:

    • Harvesting: by hand.
    • Pressing: very slow so as to respect the fruit. Juices from the last pressings are not retained.

Ageing:

    • Type: In stainless steel tank.
    • Length: 7-8 months.
