2017 Droin Montmains 1er Cru (750ml)

Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy, France

94V
92JS

The 2017 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru has a slightly richer bouquet than the Vaillons: white peach, a touch of custard and dandelion, mineral notes interwoven. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite stupendous tension and harmony with a shimmering, citrus finish that is pure joy. Is this the best Montmains of the vintage?

92-94 points, Neal Martin, Vinous (Aug 2018)

Deeper soil here. There are seductive lime leaves and a lime-zest edge to the nose with a core of white nectarines. Gently savory nutty elements too. The palate has a very fleshy palate. Rounder and loaded with white stone fruits, all delivered with an elegant, approachable style. Drink on release.

91-92 points, James Suckling (Aug 2018)

Aromas of nutmeg, citrus zest, green apple, pear and hazelnut introduce the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy wine with a blocky, concentrated core and good balancing acidity. It's a promising Montmains that's digesting its wood.

90-92 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Issue # 238 - Aug 2018)
