    Moulin de Vaudon, the idyllic property on which Joseph Drouhin’s winery in Chablis is located, is home to a converted18th-century mill. Here, Chardonnay grapes from the Drouhin family’s nearby vineyards—which include more than eight acres of land in four of the region’s seven grand cru vineyards—are transformed into some of the world’s best white wines. The spellbinding Drouhin Vaudon 2008 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos presents a bouquet of lemon zest, kiwifruit, honey, and brine that contrasts with the wine’s crisp palate, which evokes flavors of sweet herbs, white tea, and cool mineral.
