Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2010 Chablis Valmur is one of the sexier wines in this lineup. It shows a little more juiciness than some of the other 2010s, with shades of yellow stone fruits and a level of pure richness that balances some of the more overtly mineral tendencies of the year. It's all there in the glass in this magnificent Chablis. The Valmur finishes with marvelous palate staining intensity that at times virtually covers the wine's minerality. This is an extraordinary wine by any measure. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. eRobertParker.com (Antonio Galloni)

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer J.Droin: If you're in the mood for a delicious, wonderful Bordeaux white, few wineries can deliver quality like Jean-Paul et Benoit Droin. With almost 400 years of history, they're a name that is never too far from connoisseur conversations, and an unskippable part of Bordeaux's cultural landscape. Some people dream of waterfalls where milk and honey flow freely, but we'd gladly exchange that for some of these heavenly whites, whose creaminess is already not that far from honey. Jean-Paul et Benoit Droin make incredibly expressive whites. They're energetic, and they wear their flavor profile on their sleeve while still leaving some room for subtlety and nuance. The rich and creamy fruit does all of the heavy lifting, while the flint provides some extra kick and beautiful, mouth-watering contrast that helps the wine flows.
