Joseph Drouhin Vaudon Chablis Réserve de Vaudon 2014

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceFresh green apple, lime notes preview an austere style of chardonnay with super vibrant acidity. The attack is steely and lean with green apple skin, peach pit, herbal saline note. This is an oyster wine if ever there was one or serve with a creamy pasta dish to help balance of the acidity. Reasonable elegance but still austere at this point. The Réserve de Vaudon is a mix of Drouhin property fruit mostly from the Valley of Vauvillien between the Premier Crus of Montée de Tonnerre and Mont de Milieu. The soil is marine-based containing millions of tiny fossils that once laid on the seabed. The fruit is bio-dynamically grown and the fermentation and ageing is all done in stainless steel for 7 to 8 months.Tasted: 17 April 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 36.99 BCLS AB 32.00 QC 32.00 Producer: Joseph DrouhinDistributors: Pacific Wine & Spirits Inc.
