Samuel Billaud Chablis Mont de Milieu 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chablis|
With 20% of the wine seeing some oak aging, this wine has some richer tones and complexity. Riper notes of tropical fruit and ginger spice are balanced by a hint of smoke. Pair with smoked oysters or pan-fried scallops.
The 2019 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru, bottled one month prior to my visit in May 2021, has a fresh citrus nose with just a faint white mushroom scent. The palate is fresh and clean with good depth, more honeyed than the nascent 2020 but delivering satisfying length. Maybe a little more tension is needed.
