ChablisWhiteHighly RecommendInternationalNew ArrivalsPrivate Cellar

$ 120.00 AUD

1

3 hectares. Biggest parcel of the Domaine, across 2 parcels both over 80 years old. One parcel on the border between Montmains & Foret and then the second one in Foret ie both straddle the line but he bottles both together as 1er Cru Montmains. Character – Very straight, weight in the mouth. Tension, more intellectual. Lilian’s favourite Cru, typicity of Chablis as he puts it. Notes for vinification and elevage are the same for the other 1er Cru’s, noted under MDT

About the wine

Tasting notes

An immediate nose featuring white flowers and linseed aromas that are both detailed and focused. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity and plenty of race and vibrancy, with an underlying salinity. Incredible value 1er Cru Chablis

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
