2019 Domaine Billaud-Simon Chablis Mont de Milieu Premier Cru
This too is reduced though again, it seems clear that the underlying fruit is notably ripe. The lavishly rich medium-bodied flavors possess evident power and good minerality that becomes more apparent as the bitter lemon-inflected finish sits on the palate. This lingering and moderately firm effort also displays a touch of warmth but not so much as to materially impair the balance. Drink 2027+.

4 plots on the Chablis side, but all the way up the slope. Olivier notes that yields are always low from what he describes as ‘tired old, soil’. This is a clean and powerful version that has kept to classic lines without undue exoticism, but the wood adds a little toast to the finish. 14% alcohol, but with low pH and, so fresh acidity saves the day.
