Joseph Drouhin Vaudon Chablis Réserve de Vaudon 2015

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceDrouhin has been around since the 1880s, with the current generation's great grandfather starting the business as a negociant. In the early 20th century the family started as winemakers, purchasing and planting their first vineyards in the early 1960s. The Réserve is a slightly richer, more expansive palate than the entry level Vaudon, again mixing biodynamically-farmed Drouhin estate fruit, but here drawn primarily from Premier Crus Montée de Tonnerre and Mont de Milieu on the right bank, close by the Grand Cru terroirs. Some beeswax kisses the green and yellow apple, Bosc pear, with a touch of ash and skin of lees making the sharp cut of green apple more approachable.
