Chablis 1er Cru "Montmains" 2007, Jean-Marc Brocard
I keep intending to visit Chablis from my base in Puligny but like the locals I can find it hard to get out of the Côte de Beaune. Or for that matter, north of Beaune. Given that the frost zapped over half of the 2016 Chablis production I suggest stocking up. This nine year old Chablis from top producer Jean-Marc Brocard starts on an apricot, icing sugar and orange blossom nose. The secondary aromas are of cooked butter, pineapple, vanilla yoghurt. There is lovely integrated clementine and apricot fruit. Round and short like a middle aged Queen Victoria. Probably should have been consumed in 2015 yet shows it's pedigree and find breeding. Impressive longevity.
