Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A structured, lively and mineral wine with good length on the palate. Both straightforward and fresh, with exemplary concentration.

92 Points - Burghound

92 Points - Vinous
The 2021 Chablis Montmains Premier Cru comes from 3.8 hectars within the three climats, one-third each, and is generally a late ripening cuvee. The aromatics were very primal on the nose with touches of grapefruit and grass clippings. The palate is well-balanced with a citrus thread of acidity, fairly steely with a twist of sour lemon towards the finish. Quite a penetrating Montmains, this will deserve three or four years in bottle.

92 Points - Jasper Morris
Made up of all three parts of Montmains, mostly Forêts and Butteaux which is picked later. Currently cloudy but the bouquet can speak for the wine. Attractive delicate white fruits, not very reductive this year, while the fruit really builds on the second half of the palate and the finish does deliver some kimmeridgian minerals. Racy at the end but also a touch softer than some years. Drink from 2025-2029.

91 Points - Decanter
A blend from all three sectors of the Montmains Premier Cru. Seguier says that Butteaux adds the tension whilst Montmains adds the weight. Quite soft and generous, attractive already with a touch of honey balanced with crisp acidity to balance the soft fruit character on the palate. White peach notes.

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2021 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains delivers notes of green apple, ripe lemon oil, white flowers and clam liquor, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and racy palate that's fine-boned and precise, concluding with a bright, saline finish.
