2019 Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru
The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos is similarly impressive, unwinding in the glass with notes of citrus zest, confit lemon, iodine, freshly baked bread, nutmeg and smoke. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's taut and concentrated, with chalky extract, racy acids and a long, penetrating finish. This, too, is even more than usually structured and will require and reward bottle age.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Aug 2021)
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.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
Pale brilliant clear colour, a nose of immense quality, little touches of iodine in with the pure white fruit. Stone fruit with, some shellfish touches. The warmth of the vintage shows in the opulence of the wine, which is in no way denatured. This is exceptionally persistent, a great Clos indeed. Superb, a wine, which should hold together for decades.
