The producer

In Chablis, Domaine Drouhin has, since 2008, been recognized as “Drouhin-Vaudon” – named after the Moulin de Vaudon, an 18th century watermill located on the bank of the Serein River right in the heart of the Drouhin family’s 38 hectares of vineyards. Due to the ideal location in the middle of the vineyards, Moulin de Vaudon has been the headquarters of the Chablis domaine for several decades. Drouhin -Vaudon produces a range of Chablis, from village to some of the best premier cru vineyards, and the pinnacle ‘Bougros’ grand cru.

The wine

Drouhin-Vaudon owns 1.78 hectares in the Montmains premier cru vineyard. This is the northernmost vineyard in the Drouhin-Vaudin domaine, with an average vine age of 28 years and biodynamic cultivation since 1999. Ageing takes place entirely in stainless steel tanks for 7-8 months, which contributes to the immensely fresh and steely style, with oyster shell minerality, which Drouhin’s Montmains represents.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
