Droin Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

Droin Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

€59.95
 
Located right in the heart of the Chablis region, the French wine estate of Domaine Jean-Paul and Benoit Droin has been in the business of making wines for over 4 centuries now. The estate owns 26 hectares of vineyards that are spread across some of the best appellations to make Chablis, Petit Chablis, Premium Cru (9), and Grand Cru (5) wines. Currently, this estate is managed by the 13th generation of the family that founded this label. Every single bottle of wine produced here has ultimate respect to the pure terroirs of the Chablis region. The region is unique because it has many types of soils and almost 16 different climatic conditions. These conditions have a great and positive influence on the wines crafted here. Its aromatic profile, fine and complete, tends to minerality and white fruits. Also to be found are hints of white flowers, anise and menthol, brioche, and sweet spices. On the palate, its lengthy vivacity is prolonged by its saline aspect. Never aggressive, it expresses itself through the oyster shell as well as with notes of flint. After 5 to 7 years, its aromatic persistence is enhanced, thereby offering all its power, still balanced by straight-line minerality. It is after 15 years that it acquires incomparable complexity. It is the great lord of the Premier Crus. It will be perfect with grilled lobster.
