05 drouhin, domaine de vaudon chablis

I was surprised when I opened the 6-pack, because I thought I’d ordered this Chablis. It didn’t turn out too bad though!
2005 Joseph Drouhin, Domaine Vaudon Chablistry to find this wine...
Pale lemon-yellow. The nose has some intensity; high tones over ripe, linear fruit – there’s no seashore but it’s nice enough. Versus the ripe, slightly sweet Drouhin bottling, that is amply balanced by lovely acidity, this is just a little more austere; again super acidity but this time a little more to the fore but the mid-palate intensity – to which the acidity contributes – is super. Reasonable length too. Painfully young, but like an itch you can’t stop scratching – and this type of itch is usually more expensive to scratch – this is already my third bottle and I can feel another order coming on…
Rebuy – Yes

    I am bringing this lovely wine to a white Burgundy tasting tonight and am hoping it is everything I am hoping for in a Chablis wine.

    The wine was purchased at BevMo for $30 – is that the going price?

    Will let you know tomorrow my tasting notes.
