2020 Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis 1er Cru Montmains

$39.99
2020 Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis 1er Cru Montmains
A rising producer in Chablis, Jean-Paul Droin, comes from a long lineage of Chablis natives dating back to 1614 and is the 14th generation of his family to become a winemaker. Jean-Paul has some excellent holdings and has been producing some of the hottest wines Chablis the past few years. We've been impressed with the last few vintages, and 2019 was one of our top sellers for Chablis. We have a limited amount of one of the top examples from this address in 2020, the Montmains. Sourcing from a 2.15-hectare parcel from vines that are close to 50 years old, one of the characteristics of this vineyard is the gentle slope that acts as a stopping point for larger Kimmeridgian marl with a high proportion of clay. Droin believes that this is the deepest and richest of all the premier crus while also calling it very Burgundian. A concentrated wine that shows yellow and orchard fruit with notes of toasted almond and with time develops more flavors of brioche and toast appear while never losing its freshness. The 2020s are great here and a bit more of a classic vintage that should even outdo the '19s. 2020 as we keep mentioning, is the vintage to buy, especially for regions like Chablis, with the disastrous weather in 2021; there will be minimal quantities available throughout many areas of France. We have low pricing here on some of the only bottles available right now.

Vinous (Neil Martin) 92-94 points! "The 2020 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is another precise, steely classic Chablis from Benoît Droin. The palate is beautifully balanced and poised, showing good concentration and wonderful cohesion and salinity toward the finish. I cannot wait to taste the final version. (Drink between 2025-2042)"
