Just arrived: The outstanding 2022 Droin Chablis collection

If you’re looking for well-crafted classic Chablis look no further. There may be more famous names, but Droin doesn’t take a back seat to any of them. We’ve just received a French container and we went big on Droin 2022. There might be no better buy in white Burgundy!

We think Neal Martin said it best.

“People often cite Domaines Raveneau and Vincent Dauvissat as the two greatest exponents of Chablis, however, I would like to add a third – Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin. Over the last five or six years, Benoit Droin has really ratcheted up the quality. I cannot exaggerate how often Droin’s wines end up the best of flight during the annual “Burgfest” blind tastings. Again and again, they shine against stiff competition. It is time to accept that Droin is now one of the leading producers in Chablis.”
-Neal Martin, Vinous Media August 2018
“As to the wines, I would describe them as having the freshness and fruit of the 2017’s combined with the acidities of the 2020’s. They’re not exactly classically styled, but they’re harmonious, well-balanced and I think they’re going to be accessible young yet surprise people with how well they age.”
-Benoit Droin as told to Allen Meadows, Burghound Issue 92
