2019 Chablis, Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin

Benoît’s village Chablis is a go-to wine across the vintages. Highly sought-after for its reliability and brilliant quality, this cuvée is a thrill to bring to Lay & Wheeler this year. It has a beautifully chalky, citrus character, so typical of the Kimmeridgian soil here. Notes of oyster shell and a balanced, poised palate make this a pretty perfect wine at the price.

TASTING NOTES

Here the somewhat tropical nose also offers reasonable if not special typicity. The very forward and almost easy-going flavors possess good punch on the clean and dry finish. This too will drink well early on.
