Chablis 1er Cru "Vosgros" 2007, Jean-Paul et Benoît Droin
I always find that Chablis 1er cru is a reliable wine to buy. While Chablis in total covers 3,147 hectares (an area roughly the size of Scotland) the premier cru vineyards make up just 775 hectares (equivalent to the Bois de Boulogne in Paris) which is only four times bigger than the 210 hectares of Puligny. Benoît Droin described this wine as being like a menhir. We're talking ripe lime, cox's apple (tangy and sweeet), trapped minerality, sharpness, concentration, a rapier of lime with a lemon sheath and a hint of petrol. Stunning expression of the terroir.
