Tasting Notes

A soil made up of pure Kimmeridgian marls covered in clay and sandy earth, a sort of limestone sand broken down in the glacial period.

This is a very pure, straight-lined wine with a lively profile, particularly in cold years. The notes of oyster shell and sea air are very noticeable, especially when young. Very delicate and sensual, this wine is more in the category of mineral elegance than in richness and gourmandise. It will delight the lovers of great, mineral Chablis wines, as long as they remain patient over a few years. The wine will go perfectly with seafood or cheeses such as "Epoisses", goat cheese or "Soumaintrain". - Winery Note

The Droin family has been collecting small holdings in all the top premier and grand cru Chablis vineyards since 1620. Over the last 400 years they have played an important role in shaping Chablis' wine production and local politics throughout their existence. Jean-Paul was one of the first to introduce oak aging to the region in the 1980s, a transformative innovation. In 1999Benoît, Jean-Paul's son, took over as winemaker and the domaine has since flourished. His meticulous vineyard management with severely restricted yields and careful élevage of the individual cuvees afford the attention to detail required for greatness. Benoît's artistry in the winery and careful stewardship of their outstanding collection of small vineyards has long ago elevated the family domaine to the very top of the Chablis tree. The Droin style is one of purity and transparency, coupled with powerful concentration and deep minerality. - Importer Note
