Domaine Gérard Tremblay, Chablis 1er Cru 'Montmains' 2017
Domaine Gerard Tremblay, Chablis
Gerard Tremblay, assisted by his wife Helene, is 5th generation winemaker at this 34-hectare estate located in Chablis. Most of the vines are situated in the best premier cru and grand cru appellations and the wines are some of the most sought-after in the region. 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
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.
