2016 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, Jean-Paul Droin

Blended from five parcels. Delicately floral, with lovely energy to the fruit. It’s fleshy, but there’s lovely tension and surprising power. Very drinkable.

2016 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, 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.
