Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis 2017

The Droin family is one of the oldest Chablis producers in Burgundy with 400 years of experience. Their vigneron history dates back to 1620 with Benoit Droin representing the 13th generation. His father, Jean- Paul, put the domain on the map but may have used new oak barrels more than it was good for the wine. Bottled slightly later than the Petit Chablis, you can tell this is grown on Kimmeridgian Limestone rather than the Portlandian of Petit Chablis, the oyster shell notes taking precedence over the fruit aromas. This is however still incredibly energetic and refreshing, with a citrus punch that smacks you in the mouth, wonderful purity and a chalky, grippy minerality to the finish. Drinking beautifully at the moment and will be terrific throughout 2019.
