2016 Jean-Marc Brocard ‘Montmains’ Chablis 1er Cru


Côte d’Or, Burgundy, France

This Montmains is all elegance and terroir, beginning with the telltale seashore, chalk, and wet stone nose. The wine is 50/50 fermented in steel and oak tanks, but it remains crisp and fresh with a strong leesy/mineral undercurrent supporting peach, red apple, and pear.
