Doudet Naudin Chablis
―Burgundy Fine Wine Producer Since 1849
Founded in 1849 by Albert Brenot in Savigny-lès-Beaune, Doudet-Naudin is one of the oldest Burgundy wine Maisons. In 1933 it was acquired by the Doudet family, who have developed and expanded the Maison while preserving its fundamental values: respect for traditions and excellence. Christophe Rochet, the current head of Doudet-Naudin, is committed to maintaining the values of this well-respected Maison while restructuring it.
For almost two centuries we have been producing great wines with a single goal: to reveal and highlight the Burgundy terroir while respecting the values that we hold dear: authenticity and quality.
Domaine Doudet, with over 13 hectares to the north of Côte de Beaune, attests to our expertise. This heritage has great value because of the high quality and diversity of its appellations. The Domaine includes some treasures, such as Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru, “Les Maréchaudes” Corton Grand Cru, “En Redrescul” Savigny 1er Cru, etc.
In total 15 appellations are produced, all located around the iconic Corton mountain and the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune.
Domaine Isabelle DOUDET has always belonged to the DOUDET family. Today the 13 hectares of this estate are managed by Isabelle, the third generation of this family of wine-growers. Passionate about the vine, Isabelle is also in charge of the winemaking, bringing her talent and a characteristic signature to these superb wines.
The whole Domaine is worked with controlled yields and environmentally-friendly pest management methods. The organic, pesticide-free treatments are reduced to the bare minimum. We practice light ploughing to preserve the overall balance of the vineyard and its ecosystem.
The Domaine’s vines tend to be relatively old, up to 70 years old for the oldest! A sign of our rigour and attachment to the vine is the fact that certain plots are, even today, only worked by hand or ploughed with horses.
Geographically isolated from the other vineyards in Burgundy; this area possesses a singularity, which comes from the originality of its ground “Kymméridgien” (shell and calcareous sediments & stones dating from 180 millions of years (Jurassic era) when the ocean was here. The 1er Cru Montmains is harvested on the slopes of the left side just at the south of the town of Chablis and traditionally give some; very well balanced wines, each year with a wide and a regular quality.
The continental climate, hot in summer and very cold in winter, with sometimes some severe frosts in spring as well as the calcareous marls and sedimentary ground, allows producing an appreciated wine of character.
Traditional. Controlled temperatures of the musts. Racking of the musts. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The maturation is systematically done in stainless vats for 8 months.
Character And Style:
Behind its pretty pale gold dress with some crystal green reflects, the nose of this Chablis seduces by its fineness and its aromatic and elegant personality. On the palate we feel the fresh notes of citrus and lime. Roundness and finesse, elegance and persistence on the palate make it at once a greedy and elegant bottle, but also with a lively and fresh wine. It is a true wine of Chablis distinguished and well born.
Ageing And Servicel:
To drink young or to keep 3-4 years.
Temperature of service: 11-13°C
This Chablis is recommended to accompany all shellfishes and fishes. This is obviously an excellent aperitif. It will successfully accompany a slice of bread with goat cheese or a terrine of fish. But also some marinated raw salmon or fresh grilled prawns. After three more years it will be advisable for more sophisticated dishes and cook.
