This wine has had a lot of skin contact. Very different to the [link2post id=”1108″]Fevre les Clos 05 I had in December[/link2post].
Chablis Grand Cru les Clos 2005, J-P & B Droin
This smells very fresh and green, but with a good depth of lemony fruit and a pleasing play-dough minerality. There is the merest hint of oakiness, but that is just fine. The palate has density, but is really very acidic. There is also more than a hint of astrigency there, which is a bit odd. There is more than a degree of confusion about the palate, the flavours don’t quite seem to work terribly well together. It is not bad, but the Fevre was a lot better.
