2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin

2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin

This is undoubtedly the pinnacle of the Droin 2019s, and one of the finest grand cru cuvées in Chablis. Delicious on the nose, with mesmerising notes of citrus, oyster brine, and green apple. But whilst the nose is already so expressive, the palate will need time to fulfill its potential. There is so much power and elegance here, it will be worth the wait.

Tasting notes

A wonderfully broad nose features notes of oyster shell, white flowers, iodine, yellow orchard fruit and a whiff of quinine. The intense and palate coating larger-scaled flavors exude evident minerality on the focused, very firm and impressively persistent finish. This needs to develop better depth, but the solid acid spine makes clear that this is a wine to put away and forget for at least 5 to 7 years.
