2018 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot, Jean-Paul Droin

The morning sun defines this Grand Cru, which is delicate and finessed, with notes of apple blossom, sea spray, and freshly cut ginger. So pretty and saline, it’s one that you won’t be able to put down.

2018 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot, 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.
