Richness and a frank minerality make this a supremely elegant grand cru. More info

Maison Joseph Drouhin is reputed at the heart of Burgundy for its variety of appellations as well as for its laudable biodynamic methods. Here, in both the vineyard and the winery, the idea is to let the Chardonnay varietal express its identity and that of its terroir. The vines enjoy the appellation's chalk-rich soils and high-quality attention (ridging in the autumn, de-ridging in the spring, ploughing), as well as limited yields. Harvested by hand, the Chardonnay grapes undergo a very slow pressing and a maturation in used, oak casks for a year. The aim here is for the wine to develop a certain purity. This is a cuvée to be enjoyed in the first fifteen to twenty years of its life. Its pale, yellow colour has hints of gold, exhaling a delicate aromatic bouquet marked by notes of white flowers, lemon zest, and honey. On the palate, we sense the minerality typical of this appellation. This element is balanced with a pleasant, fleshy profile that promises elegant pairings with crustaceans, fresh goats' cheese, or salmon tartare.

Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses Joseph Drouhin serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Tartare de saumon au chèvre frais, Homard froid à la mayonnaise maison, Toasts de chèvre frais à la ciboulette.
