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.

Good bright, pale color. Yellow fruits and spicy oak on the nose; this smells round! Fat, ripe and spicy in the mouth; at once round and powerful but with a bit less intensity than the Valmur, which is from much younger vines. Shows a strong saline oyster juice quality, with yellow fruits in the background today. Still, this strikes me as more Cote de Beaune- than Chablis-like. Finishes broad and a bit warm, with very good length.
