2010 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Jean Paul Droin

A serious and refined wine on the nose, with notes of complex gunflint, woodsmoke and subtle citrus. The palate is similarly taut, with mineral characters of wet pebbles and graphite providing the structure to a core of attractive, fragrant white fruits. While there is undoubtedly ripeness and concentration, the overall impression is one of finesse and purity. Reined in on the finish, this clearly has much more to give with time.

2010 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.
