Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis 2018 (France: Burgundy) (ID# 1120)

Name Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis 2018 (ID# 1120)
Varietal Chardonnay
Region France: Burgundy
Notes "More than 35 plots with an important holding between Vaillons and Montmains. This has a very attractive, fresh mango and peach nose with a super fleshy, open and drinkable palate. Lower acidity, higher flavor." (James Suckling) "A more classic aromatic profile is comprised of cool green fruit, tidal pool and various white-fleshed fruit scents. The rich, full-bodied and appealingly textured medium-bodied flavors possess much better depth and persistence on the moderately dry finale." (Burghound)

Additional Notes

"The 2018 Chablis is lifted, perfumed and sensual, with striking layers of nuance that unfold in the glass, as well as fabulous complexity - especially at this level. Light on its feet with tons of pure energy, the 2018 is flat-out gorgeous. There is just so much to like in this beautiful, vivid Chablis from brothers Jean Paul & BenoƮt Droin." (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)
