Product Description

"The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu was matured in 20% barrel and 80% stainless steel for 18 months. It has a clean and precise bouquet that needs more coaxing than the more forward Les Fourneaux, with touches of hazelnut and smoke emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with an attacking entry, malic in the mouth and with a very saline finish. This is a straight-down-the-line classic Chablis that is perhaps more 2014 in style than 2015. This is nothing short of excellent." Wine Advocate 92 Points

"Healthy bright yellow. Lovely precision and lift to the aromas of lemon, crushed stone and flint. A step up in energy and definition from the preceding samples--in fact almost austere for the vintage. This seriously mineral, dry, classic premier cru finishes with excellent rising stony length and citric tang. The acidity here is 4.2 grams per liter; Billaud told me that this cuvée has been his highest-acid wine since his days at Billaud-Simon. And he noted that this later bottling tightened up considerably during its months in tank." Vinous 91 Points
