2012 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains, Jean-Paul Droin

A lively, concentrated wine from this south easterly facing vineyard. Intense citrus flavours and a taut style reflect the terroir of the vineyard, with a high level of chalk within its soil. This wine can be approached relatively young but has the structure to develop beautifully.

2012 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains, Jean-Paul Droin
Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin

Present in Chablis since at least 1620, nobody understands Chablis better than the Droin family. Jean-Paul (J.P.) first put the estate on the map, and it’s now Benoît in charge. He’s the fourteenth generation at the helm, since 1999. That was the same year the Droins built a state-of-the-art winery, in the shadow of the Grands Crus. Benoît has increased quality considerably. He uses less new oak, making Chablis that’s crisp, precise, and that shows differences between each vineyard clearly.
