Joseph Drouhin, Domaine Vaudon, Les Preuses, Chablis Grand Cru 2014

Chardonnay 100%

Description

In the sixties, when the Chablis vineyards were all abandoned, Robert Drouhin recognized the potential of this region, which had been ravaged by the phylloxera disease a century before. He was one of the first Burgundy proprietors who set about revitalizing the area. The marine origin of the soil gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavor. This wine comes from grapes harvested on some parcels of the Drouhin Family Properties as well as from grapes and musts purchased from supply partners according to rigorous specifications. Grapes are harvested by hand and placed in open-work crates. If necessary, a careful sorting process is carried out. The grapes undergo slow pressing of the whole bunch in a pneumatic press. The juice from the last press is separated from the free-run juice. The juice is then transferred to existing wine barrels (or older barrels) after a brief settling. The alcoholic fermentation and aging take place in oak barrels (500 liters, no new barrels) for a period of 12 to 15 months.
