Winemaker Notes

A dry and fruity wine, easy to drink. Its color is pale gold with greenish hues. Very fresh aromas reminiscent of citrus (lemon or grapefruit); small pleasant touches of fern or coriander are found as well. On the palate, dry and fruity, with mineral notes. Pleasant and long aftertaste.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Domaine Drouhin Vaudon is true-to-type, refined, and delicious. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits focused aromas and flavors of apple, peach, and mineral notes. Try it with linguine and clams. (Tasted: September 11, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
A mix of estate-grown and purchased fruit, this gains its richness over the course of eight months aging on the lees in stainless steel. It’s a refreshing, simple wine with classical Chablis notes of citrus and savory nuts, opening to floral earthiness that hints at freshly churned butter and bloomy-rind cheeses. Add some crusty bread and ripe Epoisses and you’d have a meal.

Domaine Drouhin Vaudon, France
Domaine Drouhin Vaudon  Winery Image
The Moulin de Vaudon, the property of Joseph Drouhin, is an 18th Century watermill straddling the Serein River, close to the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis. Flowing gently past hillsides covered with vineyards, the river has always been closely identified with Chablis and its region. Because of its unique location at the heart of their 38 hectare vineyard estate (95 acres), the historical watermill is the headquarters of the Drouhin Domaine in Chablis.

Joseph Drouhin, a precursor and pioneer in this great wine region for 45 years, strengthens the identity of the prestigious Chablis Domaine. Starting with the 2008 vintage, the name "Vaudon" was associated with Joseph Drouhin for all its Chablis wines as a sign of the firm's allegiance to this historical terroir.

The source of the most racy, light and tactile, yet uniquely complex Chardonnay, Chablis, while considered part of Burgundy, actually reaches far past the most northern stretch of the Côte d’Or proper. Its vineyards cover hillsides surrounding the small village of Chablis about 100 miles north of Dijon, making it actually closer to Champagne than to Burgundy. Champagne and Chablis have a unique soil type in common called Kimmeridgian, which isn’t found anywhere else in the world except southern England. A 180 million year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, spans from the Dorset village of Kimmeridge in southern England all the way down through Champagne, and to the soils of Chablis. This soil type produces wines full of structure, austerity, minerality, salinity and finesse.

Chablis Grands Crus vineyards are all located at ideal elevations and exposition on the acclaimed Kimmeridgian soil, an ancient clay-limestone soil that lends intensity and finesse to its wines. The vineyards outside of Grands Crus are Premiers Crus, and outlying from those is Petit Chablis. Chablis Grand Cru, as well as most Premier Cru Chablis, can age for many years.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
