Joseph Drouhin 'Drouhin-Vaudon' Les Clos Chablis Grand Cru, France 2019
VINTAGE : 2019
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : Chablis
VARIETALS : Chardonnay
The largest and probably most famous Grand Cru, located between Valmur on the left and Blanchot on the right. The exposure is responsible for its generous and powerful character. It is the cradle of Chablis, already recognized by the medieval monks as a superb location for planting a vineyard.The term “Les Clos” (enclosure, in French) probably refers to the surrounding wall that they built to fence off the parcel. This wall is no longer in existence.
The 2019 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos opens in the glass with aromas of peach, pear, orange oil, freshly baked bread and honeycomb. Full-bodied, satiny and textural, it’s layered and enveloping, with a deep core of concentrated fruit, lively acids and a long, mineral finish.
Alongside its 2017 counterpart, this ranks as one of the
finest wines I’ve tasted from Drouhin Vaudon. Wine Advocate - 94 Points
