Chablis 1er Cru "Mont de Milieu" 2007, Jean-Paul et Benoît Droin
This is a remarkable wine! Without the explanation from Benoît Droin (in the photo) it would be inexplicable. According to the master of Chablis terroir the mont de milieu is an appellation characterized by its due-south exposition and only secondarily by its terroir. This explains the obvious apricot and white peach aromas already present in this 2007 Mont de Milieu which has lovely cherry juice, fresh strawberry and ripe pear flavours. Judiciously aged 20 per cent in oak. This premier cru is known as the Condrieu of Chablis for good reason.
