Chabis 1° Cru Mont de Milieu 2019

The 2019 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru has a gorgeous bouquet featuring sensual aromas of orange blossom and peppermint and hints of lemon sherbet. The palate is well balanced with a slightly honeyed opening. This is clearly one of the domaine’s richer takes on the vintage, with tropical notes of passion fruit and pineapple defining the finish. As such, I would broach this earlier than even some of their Village Crus, such as the VV Sélection Massale. Lovely, but maybe not long-term.

The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu unwinds in the glass with notes of Anjou pear, white flowers, green apple, oyster shell and Parmesan cheese rind. Medium-bodied, tangy and precise, it's delicately textural, with bright acids and an understated profile that reflects a comparatively early harvest.

A slightly riper, more expressive and subtly exotic nose is composed by notes of both white and yellow orchard fruit, quinine and a discreet application of wood. The lavishly rich and sappy medium-bodied flavors possess solid concentration that buffers the moderately firm acid spine shaping the lingering finish. This is somewhat monolithic at present and will need at least a few years to better harmonize.
