2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin, Jean-Paul Droin

One of the more open wines when we tasted last summer, this has notes of grapefruit oil, a silky texture, and plenty of focus on the finish. Immediately charming and loveable.

2018 Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin, 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.
