Chardonnay - Droin Chablis
Winery : Droin
Droin Chablis are outstanding wines, from the zesty raciness of the AC level through the complexity of Droin's 1er Cru and Grand Cru range.
The Droin family is one of the oldest wine producing families in Chablis with over 5 centuries of production. They have 25ha of vines with superbly sited parcels in 7 of the top Premier Crus and 5 Grand Crus. The family domaine is now managed by Jean-Paul and Benoit Droin, the 13th and 14th generations respectively.'
- 2015 Droin AC Chablis: This is flavour-packed Chablis - it's limey with tangy nectarine and a hint of exotic guava. In the mouth the zestiness continues but it also has volume, a rare, but very satisfying combination. The flavours are clean but linger tantalisingly. Irresistibly delicous. Superb with a roast chicken or any shellfish.
- 2015 Droin 'Vaillons' 1er Cru Chablis: from 6 different climats that saw 15% of new and one year old wood. The name comes from 'vallon', meaning valley. Classic minerally Chablis characters.
- 2015 Droin Vaucoupin 1er Cru Chablis: Vaucoupin is located on a very steep hill, consequently everything is done by hand. Calcareous and rocky soils plus the aspect combine to produce Chablis of brilliance and finesse. Fresh, briny oyster shell to the fore here.
