At Domaine Drouhin Vaudon, Winemaker Veronique Boss-Drouhin has crafted a masterpiece with the Drouhin Vaudon Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir 2020. This exquisite wine, often savored as an aperitif, reveals the true essence of its Grand Cru origin, showcasing the unique flavor that comes from the Kimmeridgian limestone soil, rich with millions of ancient marine fossils.

In the glass, the wine captivates with a pure and limpid color, adorned with a faint greenish hint that hints at its youthful vibrancy. On the nose, one is greeted by a bouquet of fresh flowers and fruits, with delightful lemony nuances dancing in harmony. Occasionally, a touch of coriander spice emerges, adding intrigue to the aromatic profile.

Upon the first sip, this Chablis Grand Cru reveals its elegance and character on the palate. The magnitude of its prestigious origin shines through, and the influence of the Kimmeridgian soil leaves a pleasant touch of salinity that adds depth to the wine. The flavors interplay seamlessly, forming a harmonious symphony of taste that delights the senses.

Veronique Boss-Drouhin’s meticulous viticulture practices shine through in every aspect of the wine. The grapes are harvested by hand into open-work crates, ensuring only the finest fruit reaches the winery. A careful sorting process further enhances the quality of the harvest. The vinification process involves slow pressing of the whole bunch in a pneumatic press, with the juice carefully separated for optimal flavor concentration. Aging takes place in oak barrels, each with a capacity of 500 liters, allowing the wine to develop its complexity and maturity over 12 to 15 months.

The result is a wine that exemplifies the true expression of its terroir and vintage, a testament to the Drouhin family’s commitment to organic and biodynamic viticulture since the late 1980s. This dedication to sustainable practices not only respects the soil, vine, and environment but also ensures that the wine faithfully represents the unique character of the region.

Drouhin Vaudon Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir 2020 is a wine that commands attention, boasting remarkable length and complexity in its persistent aftertaste. It is a testament to the passion and vision of the Drouhin family, who recognized the potential of this historic region and revitalized it to its former glory. This remarkable wine is ready to be enjoyed now, yet it also holds promise for those with the patience to allow it to age gracefully in the cellar. Whether shared with friends as an aperitif or paired with fine cuisine, this Chablis Grand Cru promises a memorable and captivating experience.

60 reviews for Drouhin Vaudon Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir 2020

  1. Maria Walker

    Deliciously fruity and flavorful.

  2. Margaret Honore

    Drouhin: Medium dry, light fruit, mineral undertones. Requires years to mature.

  3. Kim Stapleton

    Pale golden with fresh floral, tropical, and fruity aromas. Medium-bodied with balanced acidity. Notes of apple, pear, stonefruit, and citrus. Complex and well-structured.

  4. Joseph Gray

    Vanilla, flowers, cream, wet slate. Lacks acid to balance oak. Otherwise promising.

  5. Ruth Kellogg

    Delightful wine with pure complexity, hints of citrus and toasted nuts. Enjoyable experience! Avoid pairing with strong foods, as it is discerning and light.

  6. Philip Kutner

    Age has enhanced this Grand Cru Chablis, revealing its understated greatness. The 05 vintage offers a fuller experience, perfect for my palate.

  7. Sabrina Traylor

    Floral and bright lemon notes, creamy and mineral palate. Needs 3-4 years. 91+ pts.

  8. Linda Perez

    Clean, precise, and supple. Not very aromatic, but restrained Chardonnay flavors emerge with time. A wine of texture, not just flavor. Great.

  9. Evelyn Catron

    Intensely sweet aromas, reminiscent of dessert wine. Baked apples, clove, cinnamon, persimmon, and quince flavors. Rich and lively with great acidity. Outstanding!

  10. Deanna Christophe

    Joseph Drouhin Pre-sale: Aromatic peach, Meyer lemon, and sea-inspired scent. Velvety, fruity taste with perfect acidity and a refreshing finish. Enjoyable now, but can age even better. 91+ rating.

  11. Jonathan Mickell

    Soft Chablis, better for sipping than pairing with food.

  12. Martha Collins

    Premier & Grand Cru Chablis (Willamette Wine Storage): Big, fruity aromas. Creamy palate with tart apples and hints of heavy cream. Great finish with high impact green apples and a lingering oakiness. Promising and score of 90+.

  13. Marilyn Easley

    Third Thursday Group Chablis – May 2011: Fresh orange, light herbs, and white frosting on the nose. Zippy and round with mineral notes. Touch of lemon, round oak, and good apple flavors. Clear finish with long acidity. 90-

  14. Desiree Jones

    Clear and light yellow with medium viscosity. Aromas of lemon, apple, sweet tropical fruits, flowers, mushrooms, and earth. Medium-bodied, balanced, with proper acidity, pure fruit, high-quality oak, and a mineral mouthfeel. Lingering acidity and lemon on the long aftertaste. Enjoyable now, but will evolve over the next 20 years. 91+ score.

  15. Sarah Arellano

    Chalky nose, more like Chassagne Montrachet than generic chablis. Ages well.

  16. Clark Mcrae

    Delightful blend of whitecurrant, peach, and lemon zest with a touch of yeast. Excellent!

  17. Joyce Olson

    Super young Chablis with tart apple and mineral notes. More open than Les Clos, pear emerges later. Great for 10-15 years.

  18. Jessie Hartman

    Young and clumsy at first, but improved greatly on the second night and sang beautifully on the third. Rich quince fruit, yellow pepper undertones, and a touch of meyer lemon on the finish. Tastes of big chalky minerality with nice length. Needs time to develop, but has great potential. Rating: 91+

  19. Stanley Schiller

    Great acidity and fruity notes with a lingering finish. Perfectly complemented tilefish and lobster. Can’t wait to enjoy my second bottle.

  20. Annette Rapa

    This wine is an acquired taste – not a hit with the ladies, but I found it enjoyable. Versatile with appetizers, it has character and a pleasant minerality.

  21. Jeremy Williams

    Tropical nose with pineapple and starfruit, balanced with citrus, pears, and buttery oak. Finishes dry and clean. Very nice wine.

  22. Daniel Vogel

    Clean, bright with sweet citrus and wet stones. Vibrant with a mineral finish.

  23. Malcolm Hightower

    Aged in 1 and 2 year old barrels, this wine showcases floral and honey notes. The palate reveals a pleasing combination of sweet honey, floral tones, and a hint of lemon. Well-balanced with mineral and acid elements, it is very good, with a subtle lactic note.

  24. Chris Carden

    This wine is still youthful and mineral-driven. Requires a few more years to fully enjoy.

  25. Nancy Lillard

    This wine has improved greatly, with a delightful nose of oak and Meyer lemon. The palate is electric, with intense minerality and lively acidity. Bitter lemon and white fruit flavors linger, making it a superb choice.

  26. Kendall Goulette

    Bright yellow-golden with citrus, apple, butter, almond, beeswax, mineral notes. Tropical fruit flavors, roasted nuts, intense minerals, mild spice, rich mouthfeel, good acidity, great minerality. Balanced, full-bodied Chablis.

  27. Angela Cooke

    Delightfully fruity with apple and mineral notes. Strong acidity and a long mineral finish. Tart and improved with air. Expensive but potentially worth it after aging.

  28. Alexandria Archibald

    The wine is a medium-bodied Chablis with notes of apple, melon, and a touch of oak. It has lively acidity and a slightly bitter finish. Recommended to drink in 2015.

  29. Eric Mcgriff

    Smooth and tasty with a hint of acid that fades quickly. Elegant, but not extraordinary. Gets smoother after an hour. Delightful to drink now or hold. No discernible scent.

  30. Laura Thomas

    Rich and full-bodied with a Coche Dury-like intensity. However, the mid-palate and finish could use more acidity. Overall, a decent mature Chablis.

  31. James West

    Bright, medium yellow-gold Chablis with lemon, green apple, wax, butter, vanilla, and chalk on the nose. Citrus, apple, melon, almond, mineral notes, firestone, chalk, mild spiciness, medium-plus acidity, creamy mouthfeel, and good length on the palate. Lush, ripe, tropical Chablis pairs well with Sashimi.

  32. Timothy Naylor

    Exquisite mature fruit aromas and flavors, with delightful hints of tropical and orchard fruit. Both bottles tasted tonight were equally exceptional, urging to be savored now.

  33. Dawn Apana

    Elegant, aged wine with beautiful color. Balanced, creamy texture. Ready to enjoy. Classy.

  34. Kimberly Rehart

    Rich oakey notes, balanced acidity, subtle butteriness. Good.

  35. Blake Delfin

    Straw yellow with pear and citrus notes. Concentrated and elegant, with good acidity. No roundness, but a nice concentrated aftertaste. Needs more time to reach its full potential.

  36. Ruth Lombardi

    Smoky, flinty nose with depth and ripe fruit notes. Tight palate, minerality, warm fruit, great acidity, long finish. 91-93. Drink or keep.

  37. Sandra Garber

    Chilled, not cold. Light gold. Honey, citrus blossom. Smooth, no edges. Round. Lemon zest, wet stone. Full finish with drive. 91.

  38. Anthony Kubo

    Citrus-dominant with green apple and mineral notes. Good weight and Chablis-like acidity. Enjoy now or cellar.

  39. Nancy Wade

  40. Harry Hock

    Delicious, fresh Chablis with mineral notes, lemon, and white fruit. A touch of lanolin. Good presence on the palate. Nicely representative and great value at $35.

  41. Tim Sells

    Delightful Chablis, perfect with Matunuck Oyster Bar’s Rhode Island oysters. Balanced, fruity, mineral, and acidic. Score: 91.

  42. Geoffrey Warner

    Delicate gold with green hints. Initially shy, but blossoms with lime, lemon, and orange notes. Creamy texture softens Chablis acidity. Promising evolution ahead.

  43. William Marshall

    One of the best Chablis I’ve had. Perfect balance, subtle acidity, and harmonious flavors. A wine worth aging. Must try.

  44. Nancy Babb

    Exceptional. Confirms previous note.

  45. Kimberlee Langley

    Intensely reduced.

  46. Lupe Levy

    Medium gold with a touch of amber. Lovely aroma of lemon, beeswax, and seashells. Rich mouthfeel with a hint of saline. Cellared at 54 degrees since release, uncertain of aging potential.

  47. Kelly Copley

    Balanced, with a deep Chardonnay nose and fruit. Good acids, long finish. Perfect with cockles.

  48. Cynthia Dotson

    A superb Grand Cru wine with balanced flavors of tropical fruits, hazelnuts, and toasted marshmallow. Silky and honeyed palate with refreshing acidity, notes of flint, sea breeze, and lime zest. Overall, a harmonious and expressive Chablis.

  49. Sherrell Williams

    Delicious Chablis with minerality, acidity, and oomph. Peak enjoyment. 92/93.

  50. Lorie Westlund

    Generous aromas of ripe apple, apricot, and peach with hints of honey and green tea. Underlying mineral quality. Rich flavors with great energy. Would love to try again. 93+ rating.

  51. Linda Schuler

    Deep gold color with slow legs. Nose of straw, lemon butter, musk, poached pear, and cheese. High viscosity, mild acidity, and structure on the palate. Flavors of lemon butter and pear. Perfect with lobster and epoisses.

  52. Lillian Narvaez

    Shortened Review: Dark with amber color. Premature oxidation after 15 years. Good, not stunning. Caramel and lemon nose. Dominant oxidative nature. Uncertain judgment. Not what it should be.

  53. George Lee

    Slightly oxidized with golden color, toasty nose. Some fruit (pear, citrus). Tart, expressive palate, fairly deep. Better a few years ago, but not “past” tonight.

  54. Brianna Craycraft

    Short and concise review:

    Clear, pale gold wine with aromas of stony minerality, peach, apricot, and toasted almonds. Dry, with medium acidity and body. Flavors of stone, fruit, and honey with a long, chalky finish. Good quality, but underwhelming for a Grand Cru. Drink up.

  55. Cora Scoggins

    Rich and broad, unexpectedly delightful. A touch Puligny-like with good tension. Enjoyable now despite its youth.

  56. Arnold Barker

    Enjoyable despite seepage. Malty, oxidized nose with sweet caramel. Light, bright palate with oyster shells, shrimp, tamarind, lime peel, and butterscotch. Worth it for a 35-year-old white wine.

  57. Glenda Cooney

    Unique and impressive, this Chablis offers tropical fruit flavors and a long finish. Perfect for seafood, especially seared scallops.

  58. Danielle Wheeler

    A balanced blend of oak and tangerine. Pairs with Huntsman and complements softer dishes.

  59. Deborah Langeness

    This wine has a nice weight and a refreshing nose of citrus and green apples. On the palate, it offers citrus flavors with a touch of steely minerality, resulting in a crisp and clean finish. It was good on its own, but truly shined when paired with a grilled shrimp veggie salad.

  60. Ross Brown

    Les Portes d’Or de la Bourgogne – Les Grands Jours de Bourgogne (Chablis France): Ripe, big, and engaging with a long finish. Good now with potential.
