Re: TN: 2017 Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

Sure have. This is the best wine I have had from them since 2014. I found their '15's and '16's quite ripe and textural, not quite enough cut.

Hi Dan, I see tinned peach as a positive in Montrachet and I see the character often. It is a slightly candied thing that you get with ripe Chardonnay fruit.

A Ramonet '15 Bouzeron was splendid during the week, completely over-shadowing the Bourgogne Chardonnay. d...
