J.P. Droin 2018 Chablis

A pair of beautiful Chablis from JP Droin at pre-tarrif pricing! Even without the proposed 100% tarrif we have seen prices creeping up on our favorite Chablis producers, luckily it seems Droin's suberb 2018's haven't taken the same increases as of yet. We bought all we could of these two gems.

2018 JP Droin Chablis AC....$26.99
More than 35 plots with an important holding between Vaillons and Montmains. This has a very attractive, fresh mango and peach nose with a super fleshy, open and drinkable palate. Lower acidity, higher flavor. Drink on release.
Rated 90-91/100 James Suckling

2018 JP Droin Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru...$39.99
This blend of five different plots sees a small amount of oak – 25% in a mix of new to six-year-old barrels. Attractive white peach, lime and lemon on the nose. A supple palate, fresh and almost crunchy, and quite contained with lemons and white peaches throughout.
Rated 91-92/100 James Suckling
