2020 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons, Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin

This is a blend of five terroirs across the steep Vaillons premier cru. Blending gives Benoît the chance to introduce freshness, with higher acid fruit running through the riper parcels. There is a great interplay between these two elements of freshness and ripeness in 2020. The fruit was picked early, so the warm site’s character is expressed as a perfumed, almost decadent floral character. 25% was fermented and aged in old oak, and the wine has a classical balance and huge appeal in its youth. It will age too, but that’s only if you can resist it early on, when it just looks so good.
