2015 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, Jean-Paul Droin

Spicy and brooding, with a classic Chablis nose of oyster shell intertwined with the spicy oak. Fine and mineral, but with a smoky, silex warmth which helps to carry the oak. A wonderful wine full of contradictions which lend greater complexity. Needs time, but a star in the making. 50% stainless steel/50% oak.

2015 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos, 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.
