- Closure: Cork
As one of the largest land holders in the premier cru of Vaillons, the Droin family makes this wine one of the best bargains in the AOC. With its south - southeast exposure and gentle slope, Vaillons is considered, along with Montmains, to be one of the top premier crus west of the Yvonne. Benoît makes an elegant version of Vaillons that is floral and mineral, particularly in warmer vintages. Only about 20% of this wine is aged in neutral barrel with the remainder in tank.
This blend of five different plots sees a small amount of oak – 25% in a mix of new to six-year-old barrels. Attractive white peach, lime and lemon on the nose. A supple palate, fresh and almost crunchy, and quite contained with lemons and white peaches throughout.
A more classically styled nose features notes of citrus, iodine, seashore and cool green apple. The middle weight and attractively energetic flavors combine good minerality and density with a dry, youthfully austere and focused finale. Lovely.
