JEAN-PAUL & BENOIT DROIN CHABLIS

Generally shallow soils. The sub-soil alternates between grey marl and bands of limestone sometimes very rich in "exogyra virgula" fossils - small, comma-shaped oysters characteristic of the marls from the Upper and Middle Kimmeridgian periods.
"Our Chablis Village wine is a perfect introduction to the minerality of Chablis wines. During the first three years, the wine shows itself as generous and lively, with notes of lemon, oyster shell and flint. After 10 years or more, the aromas become far more powerful, with notes of gun-flint and undergrowth. In the great vintages, it can be kept for more than 20 years."
