Chardonnay Chablis France
Mont de Lieu is a gentle rise of land which defines the border between the great vineyards of Burgundy and those of Champagne, delineated by a stone marker at its summit. The neighbouring vines of Mont De Milieu comprise over thirty hectares. William Fevre own and operate a mere half hectare, established 1963 to a doubly auspicious exposure south to southeast, it enjoys more sunshine and a warmer growing season than most other Premier Chablis Crus.
Bright straw yellow hues. Intensely mineral nose, seaweed, oyster shell and chalky limestone notes. Fine yet powerful, racy flavours on a palate of great delicacy and remarkable length. With age it develops wonderful characters of hazelnuts and candied fruit, toastyness and brine.
