A tantalizing mix of lemon oyster shell white peach and vanilla flavors but underneath it all there's a mineral component. Tightens up on the finish so give this a few years to integrate and blossom.

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

An elegant pure and quite stylish nose combines notes of dried rose petal oyster shell and sea weed all of which also add nuance to the equally pure middle weight flavors brimming with an almost pungent minerality and a saline character all wrapped in an explosive linear and bone dry finish. - Comments: Sweet spot

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.

Deeper-pitched on the nose than the Vaudesir hinting at white peach lime and powdered stone. Richer and more saline in the mouth with a distinctly chewier more tactile texture. A step up in intensity and length too but I love the purity of the Vaudesir. (Incidentally beginning with the 2008s these wines will be labeled Drouhin Vaudon. Philippe Drouhin noted that 2008 marked the family's 40th vintage in Chablis.)
