Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2016

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceFrom the 1er cru Montmains this is left bank, southeast facing, with slight slope and more clay soils, reflective in the weight of this fuller wine. Ripe and round, with white peach, pear, nougat, almond, vanilla cream, and riffy pear skin. The length of this wine is drawn with fine minerals to a vibrato finish. To match the fullness of the site, Benoit used more wood (40 percent) in the elevage here than in his other crus. Tastes more Burgundian than Chablis.Tasted: 26 May 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 64.00 private wine shops Producer: Jean-Paul & Benoit DroinDistributors: Dream Wines
