2008 Chablis Montmains

2008 Jean-Marc Brocard Montmains, AC Chablis 1er Cru

Paired with our earlier wine (look to the archives on the left), a Montmains. This was the vineyard responsible for teaching me how noble, how aristocratic chardonnay could be. A truly enlightening lesson in wine. Drunk with a Vaillons, what could be better . . .

Ripe fruit, balanced, but simple. Good, not exceptional wine - is this a product of the vintage or the producer? Far from impressive, but we are drinking this very young.
