Description

"Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale gold hues, lighter on the edge. This has an elegant and softly fresh nose with delicate aromas of white stonefruits and hints of flint and nuts, and clear wet-stone mineral elements. This has a fine, classical, mouthwatering austerity. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with mouthwatering stonefruit flavours entwined with hints of flint and minerals. The fruit forms a softly concentrated core that offers roundness and accessibility. The palate is balanced by refreshing and lively acidity, and the wine flows with drive and energy along a soft-textured line, leading to a dry, lingering finish of stonefruits and minerals. This is a classical Chablis with mouthwatering stonefruit, flint and mineral flavours on a softly concentrated palate with fresh acidity and a long, nuanced finish. Serve as an aperitif and with shellfish over the next 3 years. Chardonnay fruit from estate vineyards and growers, fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged 7-8 months in vats." Raymond Chan, October 2017

"A dry and fruity wine, easy to drink. Its colour 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". Véronique Boss-Drouhin

The vinyard is situated in the northernmost region of Burgundy, located in a dramatic circle of hills where vines have been planted for hundreds of years, where 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. This marine origin gives the wines of Chablis their unique flavour. I 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.

The 2015 vintage is a faithful expression of the briny qualities associated with this appellation. The wines deliver superb aromas. They are rich, suppple and offer a long aftertaste.
