2019 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu, William Fèvre

These 60 year old vines in Mont de Milieu are prone to millerandages, and so always produce small yields, which is particularly the case in 2019. There is astounding power and energy here, with plump fruit and zinging freshness, with a fine, salty finish. Wonderful.

TASTING NOTES

Slightly honied aromas of exotic white and yellow peach are laced with moderate amounts of classic Chablis character. Interestingly, the medium-bodied flavors are not quite as dense as those of the Les Lys though they are still notably powerful while offering just a bit more depth on the sneaky long, sappy and serious finale. At least some patience will be necessary.
