2018 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains, Jean-Claude Bessin

The Montmains is aged in oak (none new), and in 2018 it wears its élevage incredibly lightly. A generous apple scent on the nose is followed by a crystalline length on the palate, where citrus pulp and chalky salinity entwine. It is the most forward of Jean-Claude’s premiers crus, and always a transparent window on to the vintage. It should drink well from early on, with its intricate balance between ample fruit and agile freshness. It finishes with a mouthwatering savoury freshness, making you want to go back for more.
