France- Chablis


Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Montmains Chablis Premier Cru 2015 750ML ($49.95) $39 pre-arrival special

Neal Martin-Vinous 91 points “The 2015 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is showing more oakiness on the nose than its peers, though the oak is neatly entwined with the tropical-tinged fruit.

A touch of orange zest and mandarin furnishes the satisfying finish. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.”

Burghound 90 points “This too reflects notes of mineral reduction along with pretty pear, floral and iodine scents. There is good intensity to the more refined if less mineral-driven flavors that are rich, generous and delicious while offering fine depth and length on the balanced finale.… Read the rest
