    DOMAINE DROUHIN VAUDON

    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), this historical mill is the headquarters of the Drouhin Domaine in Chablis.

    Vineyard Site:

    this is the northernmost region of Burgundy, located in a dramatic circle of hills where vines have been planted for hundreds of years

    History & tradition: in the sixties, when the Chablis vineyards were all but 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 propriétaires who set about revitalizing the area.

    Soil: the Kimmeridgian limestone contains millions of tiny marine fossils embedded in a kind of whitish mortar which may have been once the bottom of the sea...hundreds of million years ago. This marine origin gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavour.

    Viticulture

    Plantation density: 6 250 stocks/ha.

    Pruning: double Guyot "Vallée de la Marne" (for its resistance to frost).

    Yield: we aim for a lower yield in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir.

    Vinification Supply: 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. Very slow pressing so as to respect fruit.

    Ageing Type: stainless-steel vats. Length: 7 to 8 months.
