Chablis 1er Cru "Montmains" 2006, Laurent Tribut
Montmains is one of the classic premier cru vineyards - a benchmark for producers to prove their Chablis credentials. This Montmains from Laurent Tribut, a small producer, has notes of lime and mineral evoking thoughts of ammonites and wafts of sea spray over barnacle-encrusted rocks. On the palate citrus, thick, some spice, seems heavy without the normal acidity backbone but will certainly be interesting in 2 years time. Needs to be aged. Tasted at the Justerini & Brooks annual Burgundy tasting.
