    • Chablis 1er Cru "Montmains" 2017 - James Suckling - February 2019 - 92/100There's attractive, bright fruit on offer here, in the ripe-mango, peach and nectarine zone. Attractive wild flowers, too. The palate has a super succulent core of vibrant acidity with a wealth of fresh mangoes and peaches. Long, smooth finish. Drink now.

      Straw and sliced-apple character. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful with light pears and apples. Alcohol pops out at end. Traditional style. Drink now.

    • Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2014 - Wine Spectator - 88/100Shows flavors of ripe, tropical fruit, but also an underlying stony element. Overall, this is loosely knit and moderately long. Drink now.
    • Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2014 - Wine Advocate - 91/100.

      The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains, raised for 12 months in stainless steel, has a crisp and precise bouquet: apple blossom and fresh pear laced with slate-like aromas. The palate is fresh and crisp with a keen line of acidity, vibrant and energetic with a nicely poised finish that lingers in the mouth. This is worth seeking out. Drink 2016-2025.
