Chardonnay Chablis France
Montmain lies to the south of the greater Chablis region, one of the larger and more salubrious vineyards, at a hundred hectares on the left bank of the Serein. Many of the more prestigious negociants have significant holdings, Domaine William Fevre retains less than two hectares. Planted to a unique terroir of very stony kimmeridgian soils, clay, chalk and fossilised oyster shells, the vines at Montmains yield an evocative wine of pronounced mineral aromas, extraordinary power, ageing potential and finesse.
Straw golden hues. An intense mineral nose, savoury stonefruit characters, autumn weed, mealyness and white floral. An expansive palate of concentration and weight, an effusive, lively wine of sound structure, crispness and piercing mineral character, its freshness and splendid length resolving on a lingering saline finish. Match to firm fleshed fishes and white game terrine.
