Product Description

95-96 Points “Three parcels running diagonally up from west to east. The complexity is staggering, fruits from citrusy grapefruit and lemon to white and yellow stone fruits. Some honey and nougat, as well as a huge amount of underlying mineral. A majestic palate that is grand and complete. The mineralogy is subdued by expressive fruit for now. It will reveal in time. Freshness with concentration in 2017. Drink this after 2025 for the most complete impression.” – Nick Stock, James Suckling, August 2018

94-96 Points “The 2017 Chablis Les Clos Grand Cru has a strict and quite reserved bouquet (especially following the Grenouilles) with more mineral/flint aromas percolating through the citrus fruit. The palate is very well defined with a little butteriness on the entry in terms of texture, smooth and seductive but this is deceiving because it segues into a very taut, linear and precise finish that feels long and satisfying. A brilliant Les Clos from Benoît Droin.” – Neal Martin, Vinous.com, Aug 2018

92-94 Points “This too is carrying enough wood to point out to readers though it doesn't really detract from the otherwise pure, elegant and airy aromas of apple, pear and sea shore scented nose. The attractively sleek, intense and mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors possess an unusually refined mouth feel before culminating in a delicious, complex and lingering finish where a touch of wood resurfaces. This too will need at least a few years of patience” - Allen Meadows, Burghound, October 2018
