Guillaume Vrignaud Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu 2021

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. Historically, this hill used to have a boundary running through its middle, separating the county of Champagne and the duchy of Burgundy. This wine was native fermented in stainless, where it remained on lees for one year, sans bâtonnage. Ripe lemon, tangerine, crunchy pear, green apple skims along this taut 1er cru, with a buzzy kimmeridgian underlay taking this through a saline finish. Lovely energy, this is drinking beauty and with time ahead.Tasted: 26 July 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
