Reviews for 2008 Drouhin, Vaudon Chablis les Clos

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, May 2011
Taut tight steely wine that is immensely concentrated. This is classic mineral-driven Chablis the crisp citrus fruit and pear flavors integrated into a dominant structure. It needs aging 5-6 years or more.

Tightens up on the finish so give this a few years to integrate and blossom. Fine length. Best from 2012 through 2023. 77 cases imported. -BS

Drouhin Vaudon's 2008 Chablis Les Clos is (for its site) surprisingly decadent in aromas evincing faded lily quince ripe peach and Persian melon all of which follow on a luscious succulent palate suffused with recognizable site-typical chalk. This rather broad impressively-concentrated but in no way heavy Les Clos should drink well sooner than most 2008s from the site but may well merit following for half a dozen or more years.
