Domaine Oudin was established in the late 1980’s by Christiane and Jean-Claude Oudin, professionals looking to escape Paris to a small holding in Chichée, Chablis, belonging to Christiane’s parents. Today Domaine Oudin is still very much in family hands, run by their daughters Nathalie and Isabelle. The Vaucoupin vineyards are around 70 years of age and no oak is used in the winemaking process.
Bright pale straw colour with a watery hue. Pronounced fresh pear and dried honey aromas meld into citrus, wet stone and mineral notes. Rich fleshy peach, pear and dried honey fruits possess a beautiful textural roundness over a stony back drop. Excellent intensity of flavour with faint elements of oyster shell and a chalky minerality also present. Finishes dry and fresh with a long shapely aftertaste. A rich, mouthfilling Chablis.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 13.5%
