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.

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

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...

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 village Chablis comes from several parcels all of which add intensity and character to the wine. The 2017 has an aromatic bouquet of white flowers with a vibrant palate of green apples balanced by an energetic mineral freshness and a hint of white pepper. Perfect from release. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

An east to south facing vineyard with deep calcerous soils, the 2017 a very expressive wine with mouthwatering white peach and ripe green apple flavours. There is some real concentration here combined with lovely freshness which suggests good ageing potential. Drink from 2018.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

The 2013 vintage was very difficult vintage to manage, with a heavily reduced crop after the hail. This superb White Burgundy has a lovely perfume, and very Puligny-Montrachet in style. The really heightened fruit and exciting aromatics dance across the palate. This is a marvellous wine from a master winemaker and will be excellent to drink now after a short...

TASTING NOTES

A refreshing and energetic wine with lovely pure fruit, there is an added tension and direction here. A bright bouquet of white stone fruits leads to a refreshing palate with lively green apple flavours underscored by a lean mineral character which leads to a long finish.
