About Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin
Benoit Droin represents the 14th Droin generation to make wine in Chablis. The family has been here, making wine, for nearly five centuries, dating all the way back to 1620. Since 2002, however, the estate has taken new form; Domain Jean-Paul and Benoit Droin was formed officially in 2002.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013
(from vines averaging 14 years of age): Pale, bright yellow. Orange zest, spices and fresh herbs on the slightly high-toned nose. Rather suave and juicy in the mouth, with good energy to its rich flavors of white peach, spices and stone. Not as ripe or Batard-like as the 2012 version, and showing less evidence of oak. Finishes long and harmonious. The 2012 may be deeper and more powerful but today I prefer the balance of this wine.
