2018 Chablis Mont de Milieu
The 1er Cru Mont de Milieu is located on a south-facing crescent of gently sloping land, forged over many centuries by the small Crioux river – a minor tributary of the Serein. Less stony than in other parts of the region, the soil in Mont de Milieu is low in fertility, hampering the vines’ production of leafy foliage and subsequently increasing concentration in the grapes.
Wild yeast primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel followed by aging in barrel for 6 months (20% new) and then return to tank until bottling (after 19 months).
TASTING NOTES |
A powerful, rich, rounded and mineral wine. Elegant and complex nose of citrus, apples and white flowers. The wine is harmonious with a balance of fruit and mineral on the palate. Celler worthy.
