PRODUCER

DOMAINE JP & B DROIN

Benoît Droin may have a youthful appearance but he speaks with the wisdom that can only come from generations of Chablisien know-how being passed down by a combination of intuition, osmosis and hard-work. This is a man who takes the long-term view and has a clear idea of what he is trying to achieve from which we can only assume that his goal is terrific wines of purity, elegance and accessibility. Combine this with some great value pricing and these wines will continue to bring enormous pleasure to all who encounter them.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOU

TASTING NOTES

An east to south facing vineyard with deep calcerous soils, this wine has a refined mineral character which is typical of this vineyard. The 2016 has an intense lime and grapefruit flavour leading to a long and persistent finish. It could do with a little bit more ageing.
Drink from 2017

TASTING NOTES

The village Chablis comes from several parcels all of which add intensity and character to the blend. The 2016 has an aromatic bouquet with a vibrant palate of green apples and mineral citrus fruits underscored by a persistent mineral freshness.  Perfect for 
drinking from release

TASTING NOTES

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.

TASTING NOTES

A very elegant wine with a real sense of direction and purpose, it reveals a subtle bouquet of stone fruits and delicate citrus characters while the palate is refreshing and pure with soft white peach and green apple fruits. A little restrained at first, this wine has plenty of depth and the potential for longer ageing.

TASTING NOTES

Always one of the finest wines that the Droins produce, the 2016 is no exception; the nose is superb, with aromas of lemon, smoke and gun flint. On the palate the first impression is one of opulence, but balanced beautifully with citrus freshness, crisp and cleansing, finishing with stony, smoky minerality. Delicious.

BUY
TASTING NOTES

Whilst the winemaking here is the same as the Vaudésir, the finished wine is very different. The Valmur is a powerful wine, with bundles of energy. The oak is arguably more prominent at this youthful stage suggesting it needs more time to age, but the brooding minerality beneath the veneer is unmistakable and hints at a wine with great potential....

TASTING NOTES

In contrast to the Blanchot, Benoît places 40% of the Vaudésir in oak, giving toasty almond and hazelnut notes alongside the taut peach and apricot notes. The fruit is clean and defined, supported by the carefully employed oak, very harmonious, giving an elegant wine which is easy to love and has finesse and power in equal measure.

TASTING NOTES

A welcome return after the 2015 crop was entirely lost to hail. As ever this is the most delicate of the Grands Crus, made entirely without oak.  The profile here is distinctly of oyster shell and a lovely hint of sea salt salinity. This is a wine of gorgeous purity and finesse; intensely chablisien with a chalky, zesty finish.  A delicate expression...

TASTING NOTES

The best vineyard in Chablis, this is incredibly complex and tightly wound, packed with rich fruit on the entry before a core of tightly wound citrus and finishing on notes of flinty minerality. Sublime.  Benoît explained that while other vineyards lost a lot of crop Les Clos was protected by its walled microclimate, losing just 10% of the crop, as...
