The 2018 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru comes from 40-year-old vines and sees 18 months on the fine lees. It has a lilting bouquet of fresh Granny Smith apple, pear and light almond aromas. The palate is taut and fresh on the entry, displaying moderate weight and demonstrating fine salinity and spiciness toward the finish. There is a touch of conservatism to this Chablis, but it should still drink well for the next decade or so.
