Crafted from grapes hand harvested in the Secher Premier Cru, southeast of the village of Chablis. The wine is aged in French oak, weathered for three years in order to not overwhelm this fresh flavoured wine with wood, but still adding richness. Aromas of citrus and blossoms fill the nose, with some briny minerality on the palate. Now this Chablis has a few years under its belt, notes of honey should become apparent.
Domaine Joseph Drouhin has close to 90 different appellations, offering a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs. For the last 130 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm, driven by the same passion that inspired the founder of the company. Joseph Drouhin has adopted the biodynamic approach, using natural products in the vineyards, showing the upmost respect for the soil, the vine and the environment. Domaine Joseph Drouhin is proud to bring the best of Burgundy to the whole world.
The 2012 Chablis Sécher is deep, powerful and earthy, with an implosive core of minerality that dominates over the fruit. Some slightly angular contours remain in a powerful, compact Chablis that could use another year in bottle to come together a little more fully. Hazelnuts, spices and dried flowers add the final nuances of complexity.
