2019 Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin, Jean-Paul Droin

This is the first premier cru Benoît decides to show. It is so flinty and taut on the nose, with lime, lemon, apricot and floral aromas, followed by nice fleshiness on the palate. It feels fresh, ripe, and straight: a classic structure, with perhaps a touch more roundness than cooler years. This unoaked premier cru will drink well from early on.

TASTING NOTES

The expressive and cooler nose is at once more elegant and purer with its nose of citrus, apple, sea breeze and mineral reduction. The notably finer middle weight flavors possess better underlying tension as well as delineation and particularly so on the sneaky long finish. A Vaucoupin of finesse.
