Gerard Tremblay , Chablis 1er Cru " Montmain " 2018

  • $65.00
Tax included.

A meticulous winemaker working from a superb new winery, Gerard is renowned for drawing out the typicity of the various appellations and his wines are a true reflection of the terroir from which they come. While most of the wines are sold locally, a limited amount is exported and have deservedly drawn the attention of such notable critics as Robert Parker, Guide Hachette and Revue des Vins des France.

The Chardonnay grapes for this deceptively weighty white come from 40 year old vines situated in the 1er Cru 'Montmain' vineyard. 30% of the wine is aged in old oak barrels giving up a rich and creamy white. Perfect with flavoursome terrines. A brilliant pale yellow in colour with green flashes. On the nose, notes of acacia flowers, yellow nectarine and green citrus fruits. On the palate, round and creamy in texture with honeyed notes leading to a lively yet lingering finish.

Try with jambon persillé, spring vegetable risotto or a wash-rind cheese such as Epoisses.
