Joseph Drouhin Chablis is an organic white wine that is aged on lees and made by Joseph Drouhin with the Chardonnay variety in the AOC Chablis denomination, in Burgundy (France).
Founded in 1880 by Joseph Drouhin in Beaune, generation after generation this winery has been acquiring terroirs of mainly Premiers and Grands Crus. In the 1970s Robert Drouhin recognised the potential of the vineyards abandoned because of phylloxera in Chablis and extended his estate with the aim of revitalising the area as far as the Moulin de Vaudon, an 18th century mill found in this area. This commitment still stands today, with the winery producing wines that authentically showcase the subtle nuances of each plot.
Joseph Drouhin Chablis comes from an estate of almost 7 hectares with Kimmeridgian limestone soils. This terroir contains millions of tiny embedded marine fossils from hundreds of millions of years ago. The vines have an average age of 30 years old and are cultivated according to organic principles and without the use of systematic chemical products that could damage the environment.
When the grapes selected to make Joseph Drouhin Chablis reach the winery, they are gently pressed and the resulting must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. It spends 7-8 months there on its lees until it is bottled.
A pioneer winery in championing the Chablis vineyards, Joseph Drouhin Chablis speaks for itself. A dry, energetic wine with extraordinary finesse.
