Vaillons is a steep, south-east facing site and Droin have a large parcel of nearly 5 hectares. Wines from here are always open and expressive, the fruit translates as almost sweetly rich, laden with flavour. Its open feel lends it very while to some new oak maturation, but you don’t see the oak in the wine. Benoît feels Vaillons mimics wines from the heart of Burgundy with its texture and elegance. Drink over the next five to ten years.
