Other Reviews....
There is only a vague hint of the hallmark Mont de Milieu exoticism on the aromas of white peach, ocean spray, lychee and shellfish--infused nose. There is both excellent volume and a seductive texture to the medium-bodied flavors that possess good power while exhibiting very fine length on the saline and attractively dry finale. Some patience should help to add depth. Drink through 2029+.

The 2021 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru has a small reduction on the nose from a few barrels that had not settled by the time of my visit. The palate is promising with good substance, fine acidity, and unlike some other cuvées, has good grip with more persistence on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2024-2035.

Neal Martin - Vinous

Five plots, all at the Chablis end. Pale colour. The bouquet is quite reticent though there are some apple notes. A little more generosity starts to emerge, slowly. Very much more white fruit, though with the usual opulence, and the wood is completely integrated. Smart work on the sorting table. No more than 10-15% wood. Drink from 2025-2028.
