Chablis, Joseph Drouhin
France – 2018
Tasting Note: Elegant Chablis, herbaceous on the nose, fresh-washed with citrus, particularly lemon and grapefruit, in the mouth, all emphasised by a sprinkling of salt.
Food Matching: A great pairing with chilli crab linguine, trout rillettes with fresh herbs or shellfish.
Vineyard: Joseph Drouhin owns around 6 hectares of vines (15 acres) in the Valley of Vauvillien, nestled between the Mont de Milieu and Montée de Tonnerre Premier Cru vineyards. 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. Drouhin estate is 6.3 ha. (15.75 acres). Average age of the vines is 24 years
Vinification: After being harvested by hand the pressing is very slow to respect the fruit. Ageing is in older oak barrels for 12 months.
