Magnums Chablis 1Er Cru Mont De Milieu

Magnums Chablis 1Er Cru Mont De Milieu

Ref: A714613

Richness combined with a finesse and complexity that can only come with careful wine making, to produce this full-bodied 1er Cru, rich with honeyed fruit and tremendous concentration of flavour. Ample and generous on the palate. More intense. Nicely steely. Lovely long finish. More power and more depth than the 1er Cru La Foret. Drink 2013 to 2016.

Established in the early 17th Century, this 10 hectare estate is one of the most ‘senior’ estates in Chablis, both in terms of its reputation and the sheer quality of its wines.

The Pinson brothers’ grandfather, Louis, established the estate’s pedigree in the late 1940’s and became one of the first growers to bottle and sell their own wine. This exemplary family estate is now run by Laurent (who is in charge of wine-making and the cellars) and his brother, Christophe (who is in control of all vineyard and viticultural work).

The vineyards are sensibly replanted, giving an average age of vines a little over 30 years old, whilst tight pruning ensures carefully maintained yields. All the grapes are manually picked and vinification is traditional, with the initial fermentation of all the wines taking place in stainless steel vats and then the Premiers and Grands Crus are transferred to a range of new, and not so new, oak barrels for ageing. This process allows the wines to have a wonderful purity and intensity of fruit (they are not dominated by oak which comes from barrel-fermented Chablis) and a richness which is so often lacking in the wines from this region.

The 2002 and 2003 Chablis-Villages come from vineyards situated just next door to the Mont de Milieu slopes and reflect their Kimmeridgian geology, being rapier-fresh with a refreshing cleanliness of fruit and a surprisingly long finish. Every wine from this marvellous domaine reflects its terroir and individuality - the 2002 wines have an excellent richness combined with a finesse and complexity that can only come with careful wine making coupled with such a spectacular vintage.

These are world-class wines which benefit a sensible amount of ageing before being released. The 2001 ’collection’ are lower in acidity than the 2002 wines and are very much wines for more immediate consumption. They are ripe and fruit-driven with dominant white fruit characteristics.

Champagne Gremillet
Extremely elegant wines that have undergone a surprisingly long bottle-ageing process that gives them a roundness not often found at this level.
