2018 Joseph Drouhin 'Drouhin-Vaudon' Vaudesir Chablis Grand Cru France

$122.99 USD

Winemaker Notes
An exquisite wine often drunk on its own as an aperitif. Pure and limpid colour, with a faint greenish hint. On the nose, fresh aromas of flower and fruit (lemony flavours) and, at times, spicy notes of coriander. On the palate: harmonious aromas bringing character and elegance. The magnitude of its Grand Cru origin and the light salty notes from the Kimmeridgian soil are in evidence. Remarkably long and complex persistence in the aftertaste.

The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru sees 12 months in used oak barrel. It has a generous bouquet of white flowers, yellow plum and touches of orange pith and crushed stone. The palate is well balanced, presenting lime and orange pith on the entry; good weight and density here. Touches of dill and white pepper furnish a complex finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent.
