Domaine Jean Paul Et Benoit Droin Vaudesir Grand Cru Chablis 2020


| /

Region: Chablis, France 
Grape: Chardonnay 
First Glance: Chiselled and delicate Grand Cru 
Acclaim: 90 - 93 points  

Benoit Droin is 13th generation winemaker in this historical family-run Domaine with an astonishing vinous record going back to the early 1600’s, making it one of the oldest in the region still in operation. 

Vaudesir is a rather complex Grand Cru, as its natural amphitheatre shape makes for varying exposures. Droin’s version is made from vines with an average age of 35 years, and it sees 35% ageing in older oak barrels. It is often the most delicate Grand Cru in the domaine’s range.  

The Review: 
93 – 95 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy 
The 2020 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has an almost clinical bouquet, wonderfully defined, with superb salinity and mineralité. The focused palate is citric and tensile, and the salinity gets the saliva flowing. Classic Chablis through and through. This will be an exceptional Vaudésir. Drink 2025 - 2050.
