Droin are an old established Domaine in Chablis and have a large number of vineyards across the region including five Grand Cru and eight Premier Cru. Their wines tend to tread the fine balance between fresh, flinty and creamy. Benoit has now taken over from his father Jean-Paul and has moved away from the amount of new oak previously used in production. Whilst some wines have seen a reduction in new oak others have been cut off entirely. The effect has been a positive one with the classic steeliness and verve of Chablis coming through far more harmoniously.
2010 was a very good vintage for red and a good vintage for white wines in Burgundy
