Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Limestone
Site : Chablis is in the Northern part of the Burgundy region. The "Premier Cru Montmains" is located South of the Commune of Chablis and is one of the more famous Premier Crus. Two particularly well-situated plots have been selected for the blend.
The Vintage 2010 : After a very cold winter and a demanding spring, the hot summer was regularly interrupted by cold and rainy intervals which early September gave way to a bright and warm weather, that speeded up the maturation of the grapes. Harvest began in the last days of September under a bright sunshine. The white wines are tense with a tight texture underlined by a mineral overlay and an outstanding acidity. Aging in oak (demi-muids) during 12 months.
Tasting : Bright gold colour. Very pure aromas of citrus fruit. Delicate vanilla note. Beautiful mineral expression. Tense and linear. Well-balanced. Very pure fruit. Precise with a good tension. Well-shaped acidity. Beautiful minerality with a touch of graphite on the finish.
Food pairing : Pâté, seascallop, turbot, poularde in a creamy sauce as well as many goat cheeses.
