En Primeur | Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin 2019

In the world of wine, Domaine Jean-Paul et Benoît Droin is the equivalent of Chablisien nobility. Benoît is the 14th generation of this great winemaking family and is taking the domaine to new heights. His father Jean-Paul was a man of his time, producing wines of the very highest quality but bearing the influence of oak aging which was then so fashionable. Benoît, however, has set out to plough his own furrow. He strives to produce wines with a true terroir character and the steely minerality for which the greatest wines of Chablis are famed. To this end, he uses oak in moderation and only for some of his cuvées.

Benoît is extremely happy with his 2019s in everything but quantity. The average production of the domaine is down a whopping 40% in comparison to the 2018s. He attributes this to the cooler spring temperatures, particularly in April, which caused stress at budding time. Consequently, many vines had just one bunch of grapes per branch as opposed to the normal two or three. The flip side is that these reduced numbers of bunches have produced wines of extraordinary intensity and quality. This is a superlative selection.
