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 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.
Owing to very low yields in vintage 2016, the wines are extremely limited.
2017 Droin AC Chablis: This is flavour-packed Chablis. Nougat and sweet citrus, guava and exotic tropicals too. Smooth in the mouth with melon, charcuterie and barley sugar.
2017 Droin 'Vaillons' 1er Cru Chablis: From 6 different climats that see 15% of new and one year old wood. The name comes from 'vallon', meaning valley. Classic minerally Chablis characters.
