Chablis 1er Cru
« Montmains »
« The Wine of Flowers »
Pale and pure gold for a summer perfume: lady slipper orchid and the broom brush of dry limestone hills. Its unctuous savour, slightly sweetened with vanilla, fills your mouth and haunts it. An immediate pleasure.
Inhabited by a green-flecked, golden light this renowned premier cru from the left bank gives off fragrances of water flowers (lilies, water lilies…) that will flutter in your glass. Its fatty nature and its subtle, marly touch, just like the terroir it came from, will envelope your mouth with its richness. It can be enjoyed now or, even better, in a winter’s time.
The bright yellow peel of a lemon doesn’t just coat the glass; it fills it with fragrances of lemon zest and orange blossoms. Its attack is dynamic. Fruit shortly follows and flows towards its more serious side; the dense flavour of blue marl. The oysters better watch out...
True to its floral rank, this wine exudes, under a golden veil, delicate fragrances of honeysuckle and sandalwood. Its fatty attack quickly makes room for the mineral texture that is sure to make you salivate. This vintage embodies the best of 2015. It will be ripe and fresh for a long time to come.
The bright gold juice releases a vetiver fragrance from its glass prison. Its attack is crisp and fresh and then feisty again. Its dry finish breaks up over your taste buds leading to a mineral rush. Forget about this one in your cellar for at least 2 years and enjoy within 10 years.
If its golden juice takes on hues of pale green it is only to highlight the finesse of its aromatic character where budding honeysuckle marries with the elegance of woody notes. Initially suave, it evolves into a greengage plum flavour finishing on a foundation of stone. Reaching maturity towards the end of 2015.
