Domaine Jean-Paul et Benoit Droin 'Valmur' Chablis Grand Cru 2018


| /

95 points “These are among the younger vines at the domaine - planted in 2005 and 2012 - and are located on the warmer, south-east facing side of the Grand Cru. Aged in 40% older wood, the resulting wine is a very well-balanced, hauntingly perfumed white, with fennel and bay leaf aromas, subtle cinnamon spice, some underlying fruit power and racy acidity.” - Tim Atkin MW, Decanter, July 2019

94 points “Fermented in just less than 40% oak, this is near Le Clos and moves in that richer, denser and weightier direction. All ripe, yellow fruit here. The texture is very fleshy but rich and quite dense with peaches and apple pie. Drink on release or hold.” – Nick Stock,, July 2019

93 points “ A background dollop of wood surrounds pungent aromas of mineral reduction, petrol and green fruit. The spicy flavors don’t possess quite the same mid-palate concentration though there is still plenty of punch and muscle on the sneaky long and nicely complex finale.” Allen Meadows, Burghound Issue 76, 10/19
