Highly rated 1er Cru Chablis
Subtly smoky and thrilling in minerality, this pure-fruited, lemon-scented Chablis highlights white peach and lime flavors etched by limestone and chalk. Despite a hot vintage, it's a classic, cooling expression of Mont de Milieu vinified entirely in stainless steel. It's at peak from 2023 to 2035 but the wine should hold longer still. Anna Lee C.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
In an ever-changing world where the new quickly goes out of fashion, maintaining tradition can be a real challenge. However, historical traditions are our identity and we need it as a reference in our lives. Charly Nicolle, a young winegrower from the village of Fleys, near Chablis (Burgundy), likes to cultivate the vines like his father and grandfather did, and therefore continues the family tradition in his 16 hectares of vineyards spread over four denominations: Petit Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru “Mont de Milieu”, Chablis Premier Cru “Les Fourneaux” and Grand Cru “Bougro”. A passion for the vineyard, which he has had since he was a child, has given him the courage to make his own wines.
