Domaine Jean Paul et Benoit Droin Chablis Vaudesir 2011,  (BH91-93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine Jean Paul et Benoit Droin Chablis Vaudesir

Vintage: 2011
Region: France--Burgundy--White
Appellation: Chablis

BH91-93
Rated 91-93 points by the Burghound: "(from 30+ year old vines aged in 50% wood, some of which is new). Noticeable wood sets off very ripe yellow and white orchard fruit with background nuances of mango, seaweed and mineral reduction. There is exceptional richness to the dense and seductively textured, indeed even opulent flavors that display a bit of wood toast on the otherwise dry, intense, focused and impressively long finish. This is really very good though as is usually the case with this wine, it is carrying more wood that I can personally warm up to."More information from the Burghound: "Benoit Droin noted that 2011 "had a lot of variable weather that caused us constant concern but in the end, it all worked out just fine. There was an early and relatively quick flowering which gave us a good fruit set. July was very hot and August was warm and wet, which really galvanized maturities. I could see that maturities were advancing rapidly and I really wanted to avoid another 2006 where we went from under ripe to over ripe in the space of 7 days. I elected to begin picking on the 31st of August and brought in very clean fruit that possessed potential alcohols that ranged between 12 and 13%. As to the wines, they are actually relatively classic though with such an early harvest you wouldn`t necessarily expect that. For me, 2011 is definitely a vintage of terroir but in this case I don`t mean it in terms of transparency. Rather, my sense is that only the great terroirs made great wines as the less gifted terroirs produced too much fruit and thus diluted wines. I can`t really name a comparable vintage so I would describe the 2011s as a blend of 2005 and 2009." The now in-bottle Droin ?10s have turned out particularly well and many of them hit the upper end of my predicted ranges."
