JEAN-MARC BROCARD JEAN-MARC BROCARD - Chablis Premier Cru Montmains - 2016

JEAN-MARC BROCARD Chablis Premier Cru Montmains 2016

See the wine detail page

(89-91) POINTS

The 2016 Chablis 1Er Cru Montmains is matured in a mix of 50-100 hectoliter foudres (one-third) and stainless steel vats (two-thirds). It has an attractive if light apple peel and fresh pear-scented bouquet that needs some encouragement from the glass. The palate is balanced and fresh with well-judged acidity. There is a slight tang of quince in the background and it sports a fine, quite saline finish. It should be ready to drink straight from bottling, but should give six to eight year's drinking pleasure and possibly more.
