2016 Jean-Paul Droin Chablis

Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2016 Chablis Villages was showing a little reduction, although Benoît Droin is completely correct in stating that it will disappear once in bottle and given sufficient aeration. The palate is where it is all happening—very malic with plenty of green apples and saline in the mouth, with bitter lemon and fresh pear toward the pointed finish. This has good potential. 88-90 points

Stephen Tanzer

(mostly "Chablis de Chablis," according to Droin, who explained that this wine does not include fruit from Préhy due to the hail and frost and is mostly from vines located between Vaillons and Montmains). Bright yellow. Ripe aromas of lemon zest, minerals and hazelnut, plus a hint of oatmeal reduction. Densely packed, rich and surprisingly fresh, with intense citrus zest and mineral flavors giving the wine a very firm finish. 89-91 points

Allen Meadows

This is still carrying post-malo aromas rendering the nose tough to evaluate. Otherwise there is both more volume and richness to the medium-bodied flavors
