Guillaume Vrignaud Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu 2018

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceThe Vrignaud family, settled in the village of Fontenay-près-Chablis, have been growing vines for 5 generations. Guillaume Vrignaud started to bottle his first wines in 1999, and became certified organic in 2009. They have 28 hectares today. This comes from 40 year old vines in the 1er Cru Mont de Milieu, situated south of the Right Bank's acclaimed Grand Cru Chablis. This wine was native fermented in stainless, where it remained on lees for one year, sans bâtonnage. Amply saline throughout, this creamy wine is weighted with pear and lees, but lit with a vibrant lemon pith and peel that streak along the green apple palate, finishing with a saline lemony snap and lingering mineral salts. Powerful wine, drinking beautifully now, and with time ahead.Tasted: 23 June 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 58.95 LCBO Producer: Guillaume VrignaudDistributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
