Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, November 2009

The most famous 1er Cru Chablis vineyard, Benoît's 2008 Montée de Tonnerre displays an intensepalate of citrus zest and orchard fruit that is lifted up by its incredible minerality and freshness. Fine and precise, yet bold and complex, this will make excellent drinking in a few years' time.

Producer

Domaine Jean-Paul Droin

Benoît Droin is the 14th generation of his family to manage this domaine, whose history stretched back a staggering 400 years. He is a fanatical viticulturalist with an unparalleled understanding of the impressive array of the region and its vines. Widely respected as one of the most dynamic winemakers in the region, he has build on the success of his father, Jean-Paul, in his own distinctive style. He has taken the domaine away from the pronounced use of new oak for which it was once known, and reduced yields through a revised pruning system. The concentration and purity of the fruit he produces makes exemplary Chablis. Unmistakable as well as captivating; Chablis at its best.

Region

Chablis, White Burgundy

Chablis is world famous for its fine white wines produced from the Chardonnay grape. The best vineyards are perched above the winding Serein river and are south or southwest facing ensuring better ripeness in this cooler climate. It has four appellation levels. Petit Chablis is the most modest and simple followed by Chablis, which is the largest and most prominent. Premier cru Chablis is the third largest appellation and encompasses almost 40 different climats or vineyards including the famed Montée de Tonnerre, Fourchaumes and Mont de Milieu. The most noble of all Chablis are the grand crus of which there are 7 climats in total Bougros, Les Preuses, Vaudésir, Grenouilles, Valmur, Les Clos and Blanchot. The wines of Chablis have remained some of the best value in the world, particularly their superb grand crus which can easily cost 50% less than its closest revered white grand cru neighbour, Corton Charlemagne.
