Easy drinking, modest in nature, a chardonnay of eloquence for the variety, stone fruits, flint, green apple, light halva nutty sweetness all present and accounted for. That being said, it’s softer than expected with pudgy texture rolling long through the palate, however there’s flickers of minerally things underneath with the wine finishing sparkling and cool. It’s great drinking actually, though those expecting structure and tension need not apply here.
About Durup :
As far back as you can go in time (actually until the 17th century), there has been a Durup winegrower in Maligny ( 8 km north of Chablis).
With about 200 hectares of vineyards (of which more than 35 hectares are the most prestigious Premiers Crus) as own properties, the family Durup is today the independent top producer in Chablis as well as in the whole Burgundy.
The Durups are the leading producer in the following appellations : Petit Chablis AOP, Chablis AOP and different Chablis Premiers Crus as for instance Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume, Chablis Premier Cru L'Homme Mort, Chablis Premier Cru Vau de Vey, Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre and Chablis Premier Cru Montmain.
Located in the very heart of the Chablis appellation, the Durup family vineyards contain a high concentration of steep, well-exposed hillsides of rocky soil, terrain that guarantees the exceptional quality of the wine.
