Wine tasting notes

The name of this appellation comes from “Mont de Lieu” which marks the border between Burgundy and Champagne, illustrated by a marker stone dividing the two duchies which can be found on its summit. With a double exposure moving from south to south-east facing, this terroir benefits from a higher average temperature and more sunshine than the other Premiers Crus. Intense mineral notes. Fine yet powerful, racy and delicate, this wine has remarkable length. With age it develops aromas of candied fruit and hazelnuts, with a few toasty touches.

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013)90 pts

Aug 2015 - Neal Martin - The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu has a very reserved, austere bouquet with light undergrowth scents. The palate is fresh and vibrant with good concentration, well-judged acidity, leading to a classic Chablis finish that is more like a 2014 than a 2013. A little austerity to contend with perhaps, but it is very harmonious.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013)90 to 92+ pts

Aug 2014 - Rich, ample and broad on the palate, the Chablis Mont de Milieu is endowed with significant richness, body and weight. White and yellow peach, mint, smoke, slate and graphite notes blossom in a beautifully resonant Chablis that should drink well with minimal cellaring given how expressive and open it is today. -- Antonio Galloni

A firm touch of toast and vanilla gives this rich wine a rounded character. Honey and creamed apple flavors give further generosity. Yellow fruits at the end are balanced with a more zingy lemon and pink grapefruit acidity. Drink this ripe wine from 2017.

Burghound (2013)89 to 91 pts

A notably ripe but not really exotic nose reveals notes of dried yellow fruit, algae and oyster shell. There is excellent size, weight and concentration to the broad-shouldered flavors that, like the Vaillons, are almost salty. While there is very good persistence this lacks the sheer depth of the best 1ers in the range. There is also limited minerality at present but I suspect that it will emerge in time as Mont de Milieu typically does so with bottle age.
