2017 Domaine Jean-Paul & Benoît Droin 1er Cru Chablis "Montmains"

SKU #1435414 93 points Vinous

 The 2017 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is clean, racy and super precise. Chalk, white flowers, mint and white pepper all confer brightness to this energetic, brisk taut Chablis. In the glass, the Montmains is so attractive and translucent. Orchard fruit and sweet floral notes linger on the close. Readers who want to see the elegance of 2017 will find plenty of that here. (AG)  (1/2020)

92 points James Suckling

 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.  (7/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains reveals notes of apples, nutmeg, peaches and honeycomb. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and fleshy, with more texture and concentration than the Vaillons that preceded it, while remaining quite taut and structured. (WK)  (8/2019)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "From several adjoining parcels in Montmains proper where there is less slope and a rich, ochre coloured clay, providing a more Burgundian and less Chablisian style. Pale colour, dense white fruit on the nose, swells to an impressive volume with a smoky note. Lovely finish, generous all through. 30% has been vinified in barrel." (01/2019)
