2018 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains, Jean-Paul Droin

From deeper soils than a lot of Chablis, this is intense and stony, with notes of nectarine and orange blossom. There’s a real mineral tang on the finish, that lasts an age.

2018 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.
