2008 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Jean Paul Droin

"This is perhaps the most elegant of these grands crus with its white flower and mineral reduction aromas nuanced by oyster shell hints that continue onto the full-bodied, rich, powerful and minutely detailed middle weight flavors that are precise, lemony and beautifully balanced on the strikingly long finish. In a word, terrific and this level of refinement is rare." BURGHOUND, 94 points

2008 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Jean Paul Droin
Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin

Present in Chablis since at least 1620, nobody understands Chablis better than the Droin family. Jean-Paul (J.P.) first put the estate on the map, and it’s now Benoît in charge. He’s the fourteenth generation at the helm, since 1999. That was the same year the Droins built a state-of-the-art winery, in the shadow of the Grands Crus. Benoît has increased quality considerably. He uses less new oak, making Chablis that’s crisp, precise, and that shows differences between each vineyard clearly.
