Domaine Faiveley: Great Burgundy wines in Nuits-Saint-Georges since 1825

Chablis

1er Cru "Montmains"

Chablis’ vineyards stretch out across 19 villages along the Serein valley.
Chablis, the ‘Golden Gateway to Burgundy’ devotes itself to producing a crystalline, perfumed, lively and sophisticated wine, whose name has become almost synonymous with ‘fine dry white wine’ outside France.

Characteristics

Total Surface Area of Premier Crus: 155 ha
Soil: Limestone
Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Yield: 58 hl /ha

The producers we have selected provide us with high-quality musts, which we vinify in our cellars in Nuits-Saint-Georges.   They benefit from the same technical means and the same attention as our Côte d’Or wines.
The wine is then matured on its fine lees for 10 to 12 months, enabling it to acquire a certain suppleness and to make the aromas more complex.

Our Tasting Notes:

A brilliant pale yellow colour.  The elegant nose has a blend of white flowers and citrus fruits which continue on the palate, making this a complex wine with long-lasting aromas and tastes. It is relatively smooth but has a definite liveliness.

Suggestions

Serve at: 10°C to 12 °C
Serve with: Fish Terrine, Cheeses (Epoisses or Chaource)
Cellaring Potential: 4 to 6 years

This wine has a fine, typical Chablis nose. It is elegant, opening up with mineral and white flower scents. On the palate, it is full and round and maintains a certain liveliness. This Chablis "Montmains" has beautiful balance and fine complex aromas.

This Chablis "Montmains" 2007 has a very pale yellow colour. Its floral and fruity nose has very pleasurable scents of linden tree, grapefruit, peach and apricot. The frank and supple attack gives way to beautiful balance on the palate between a sense of fatness and a sense of tension. Being faithful to its appellation, this Chablis has a mineral finish.

Tasting Date : March 2009
