The 2016 Chablis Grenouilles Grand Cru has a clean and precise bouquet with granite and flint aromas mixed with pressed white flowers, red apple and Conference pear. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and linear, open and one of the most generous 2016 from Droin at this early stage. In fact, you could almost drink this now, especially to savour upon the long spicy aftertaste. This is a deeply satisfying, quite involving Grenouilles from Droin. (Neal Martin, Vinous, August 2018)

Medium lemon color. Very champagne like with a #lees finish that was almost bitter tasting. #chablis #grandcru #chardonnay

2014 was fucking delicious. Wine of the night for this guy. Concentrated, sexy, effortless. This is how you want your cougar juice

Beautiful gold color. Yellow apple, lemon and secondary notes. Very balanced body, with great acidity. Long finish. Beautifully aged Burgundy.
