Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu 2015 - Château de Fleys


"Mont de Milieu" is THE parcel Château de Fleys is famous for, and is also one of the most prestigious in Chablis. A Mont de Milieu for just £21 is pretty rare... Also lying towards South, these vines are ideally located and produce powerful and fruity Chablis. Coming from 50 year-old vines, it is a remarkably well structured and concentrated wine with delicate aromas of dried fruit and a hint of honey. The beautiful mineral finish makes your pleasure last even longer.

89/100 "The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu has an intriguing bouquet with a touch of Play-Doh on the nose (I confess, I loved the smell of Play-Doh when I was a kid, though I was not thinking of Chablis as a five-year-old). The palate is quite pretty: well-judged acidity, with subtle notes of pineapple and mango, maybe missing some nervosité on the finish but displaying decent length. Fine."

89/100 "Light yellow. Focused nose opening up to white flowers, freshly-cut grass and mineral undertones. Dynamic palate showing lovely liveliness and tangy freshness. Tense, precise and perfumed. Will keep for a few years." (previous vintage)

As a result it is a fruity, structured Chablis with intense aromas of exotic fruit and a hint of hazelnut. Very, very elegant Chablis which we can only recommend, especially to amateurs of more buttery...
