Above the sub-soil of Kimmeridgian limestone marls is found a very clayey, quite deep white-coloured soil. The slope is not very pronounced.
It is always a very open wine. Its sunny exposure gives it lovely maturity. The minerality often being more discreet, this gives way to yellow fruit aromas (apricot, quince). Its clayey soil brings a lot of depth and length. The palate is always more rounded than linear, with notes of ripe fruit. Over time, the wine regains freshness but still keeps a very open and gourmand style. It will go very well with king prawns, good poultry in sauce or even pan-fried "foie gras". - 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
