2022 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains,Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin

Montmains is on the same slope of the left bank as Vaillons, but has deeper clay soils, and typically produces a rounder wine with more weight. The clay in the soils make it a cooler site, and it often gets picked last. This makes for a really quite burgundian style of wine, as in, it wouldn’t be impossible to mistake it for something from the Côte d’Or if tasting blind. But that little kick of oyster shell which whips around the fruit gives it away as Chablis.

Tasting notes

35% wood – slightly lower figures this year, especially compared to 2021. The fruit appears at once, though without too much reduction. Broad shouldered but clean and mostly with white fruit. A long pleasing and fruit rich finish.
