Over the years as the demand for Chablis has grown the appellation has expanded its borders to meet this demand. Unfortunately most of this expansion has occurred in areas where portlandian limestone is the predominant soil type. Traditionalists to their core, Jean-Paul and Benoît Droin source their Chablis from thirty plots in the villages of Courgis and Fleys. Totaling 9.33 ha and entirely on Kimmeridgian soils, these sites ensure a depth of minerality one has come to expect from the appellation. It is fermented and aged entirely in tank. Their holdings on portlandian limestone are bottled, as it should be, as Petit Chablis.
Very taut with plenty of peaches and light green mangoes. Very fresh and fine. The palate has a lithe and juicy edge. White peaches and lime citrus with a very smooth, fleshy and nicely balanced palate. There’s a lot of fruitiness and acid power here. Excellent AC Chablis. Drink or hold.
