2010 Jean-Paul & Benoit Droin Chablis 1er Cru "Montmains"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Chablis Montmains veers a bit more towards the yellow stone fruit end of the spectrum yet maintains gorgeous energy and vibrancy. Hints of nectarine, peach and crushed rocks meld together on the inviting, caressing finish. The Montmains is a bit voluptuous for the year. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
A mildly toasty nose also offers up notes of mineral reduction and plenty of classic Chablis character that dissolves into surprisingly forward and opulent medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of volume and richness while the finish tightens up quickly. The classic character of the nose is confirmed bythe finale as it too offers plenty of oyster shell and iodine.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Pale, bright straw-yellow. Subtly complex nose melds lemon oil, orange blossom, vanilla and white truffle, plus a hint of hazelnut; 'not grilled like the hotter years,' notes Droin. Sweet and rather lush in texture but with harmonious acidity keeping it fresh. Plenty in reserve here: this sexy wine should reward some time in bottle.
