    The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains opens in the glass with notes of green orchard fruit, hazelnuts, clear honey, fresh bread and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, layered and muscular, with chalky grip and a saline finish, it has turned out very well.

    William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Aug 2021)

    A smoky nose of mineral reduction, grapefruit and oyster shell introduces dense and almost painfully intense flavors that are supported by citrus-tinged acidity on the powerful and focused finish. Though tightly wound at present, I suspect that this will flesh out relatively quickly.

    Pale lemon and lime. The Montmains has a stricter nose, some grilled hazelnut on the palate even a touch of pyrazine or scorched rocks. Lime note at the finish, quite complex. Benoît characterises it as more Burgundian.
