Wine Critic Reviews:

Droin's 2017 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru is going to need time to fully emerge. The richness and oiliness that are typical of this site are present and yet hidden behind a veil of structure. What I find most captivating about the 2017 is the interplay of explosive energy and elegance. This is an especially refined expression of Valmur. Readers who can find it will be thrilled.

Again the wood influence is subtle but by no means imperceptible though it doesn't fight with the citrus, ocean breeze, petrol and mineral reduction scents. The broad-shouldered, dense and muscular flavors possess excellent richness if not nearly the same refinement while flashing fine power and punch on the solidly concentrated if ever-so-mildly warm and markedly firm finale. Patience absolutely necessary and strongly advised as this is presently a block.

The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has come together nicely since I tasted it last year, picking up additional tension with further time on the lees. Unwinding in the glass with a reserved bouquet of green apple, iodine and citrus oil and framed by a subtle touch of wood, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and structured, with chewy extract to burn and lively acids. This will demand some patience.

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.
