92 points: "A citrusy and mildly exotic nose combines notes of both white and yellow fruit, orange peel and a touch of passion fruit. There is excellent volume to the intense and powerful medium weight plus flavors that culminate in a robust, dense, sappy and mildly warm finish that delivers excellent length. 2025+" - Allen Meadows, Burghound Issue 80.
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
