2013 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur, Jean-Paul Droin

Situated right in the heart of the Grand Cru hillside, the wines of Valmur are typically terrific examples of why Chablis' Grands Crus are so alluring.This is one such wine: with a slight creaminess to the palate and excellent minerality, this is, once again, my favourite of Benoît's wines.

2013 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur, 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.
