2018 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur, Jean-Paul Droin

This is very reserved and reticent at the moment, with so much minerality and focus. Powerful, this is a wine that will need time to come around. When it does, it will be one for the ages.

2018 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.
