Crisp, vibrant attack in the mouth, mineral nose and fine, unfolding to reveal honeyed notes. Great length and structure.
The forty-year-old vines in the Montmain vineyard contribute to the extra weight in this wine. 30% of the wine is aged in futs de chêne (specialty oak vessels). A fine wine with a profound mineral nose, deceptive weight, and a lingering finish this would go well with something rich and sweet such as scallops or chicken.
Gérard Tremblay and his wife, Hélène, oversee a domain that they inherited in a line of five generations, but which they have mostly built themselves. With 80 acres of vines under production, most of them in the best Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations, their list of Chablis is among the most prestigious in the region. Tremblay is known locally as an accomplished wine maker. He is justly famous for his ability to draw out the typicity of distinct appellations, underlining the terroir of his vines vintage after vintage.
