Tasting Notes

This is the only Chablis Premier Cru "climat" situated on the Grand Crus hillside. Soils are shallow and covered by white marls.

From opening, notes of flint and lemon zest are quickly detectable. On the palate, the wine is long and well-defined. Its beautiful acidity satisfies lovers of sleek, refined Chablis. Over the years, its aromas of gunflint, flint and oyster shell will gain in intensity. It can be enjoyed young for its fruit and energy during its first three years. If not, it is imperative to wait 7 to 10 years or more. It will go very well with spicy or citrus-based starters. - 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
