Tasting Notes

Soils are marked by a relatively gentle slope, which has allowed the sometimes bulky Kimmeridgian marls to remain in place. The soils are therefore deeper than in the other Chablis terroirs.

The significant amount of clay in this terroir brings great substance and roundness and it is without doubt the richest and deepest Premier Cru. It is often qualified as very 'Burgundian' with its style richer rather than lively. From its early years, aromas of yellow fruits and apricot may be found, but also hazel and roast almond, with a flavoursome and concentrated palate. With time, notes of brioche and toast appear, while maintaining great freshness on the palate. It will go very well with white meats in sauce or with noble fish varieties. At ten years old, it will be perfect with 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
