The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru les Clos saw half the crop aged in barrel and the remainder in stainless steel. It has a refined and pure bouquet with scents of flint, smoke and a touch of dandelion. This is sophisticated and entrancing. The palate is fresh on the entry with notes of tangerine, citrus peel and even hints of red cherry. It builds in the mouth and delivers a very harmonious, lightly spiced and persistent finish that attests to its potential. I admire the authority and ambition of this les Clos that clearly aims to be the pick of Droin's 2016s.(NM)
Pale yellow-green. Urgent aromas of white peach, soft citrus fruits and iodine. Silky on entry, then less fat in the middle than the Grenouille, communicating a wonderfully fine-grained texture without any impression of weight. This wine leads with its intense fruit right now but it's extremely young. The slowly mounting, detailed finish and impression of calcaire energy suggest that it will display more minerality with time in the cellar.(ST)
Here there is no reductive funk with its pretty, ripe and airy aromas of mineral reduction, white flowers, pear, apple and iodine. There is excellent size, weight and mid-palate density to the very rich and overtly mineral-driven flavors that really fan out on the sappy finish that also delivers fine length if not the same depth as the best here. That said more depth will almost certainly develop with a few years of bottle age.
