The Jean Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis Village 2019 is 100% Chardonnay, fermented in stainless steel vats. It has a medium to full body, and has mineral notes on the nose. Bright and layered, with a satiny mouthfeel, it is elegant on the palate. When young, it is lively, with notes of lemon. And as it ages, you get more powerful aromas and notes of gun-flint.
Jean-Paul and Benoit Droin are a father and son duo that hails from a long line of vignerons, reaching as far back as 1620. It was Jean-Paul that put their domaine on the map, and Benoit is touted on of the most dynamic winemakers of the region. Benoit, a 14th-generation Droin, handles most things on the estate now. He runs a sophisticated operation, with each wine receiving treatment more suited to its terroir. Domaine Droin has 13 hectares of vineyard, producing seven Premier Crus, five Grand Crus, Petit Chablis, and Chablis wines. Their wines are rich and full-bodied, but retaining a steeliness and a purity characteristic of classic Chablis.
