1er Cru Montmain 2017
Caisse de 6 / Case of 6
The four Montmain parcels are dotted along a clay hillside, with few pebbles.
This is a cool or cold climate, depending on the year, and is known to be
susceptible to spring frosts. The wines of Montmain are particularly ﬁne and
balanced with notes of citrus or white ﬂowers in their youth, depending on
Kimmeridgian. Left bank. Hard limestone in clay, the soil can be quite deep
in places. Gentle slope. Exposed to the wind. South-east exposure.
No added yeast, long fermentation using indigenous yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
Matured for 12 to 16 months. In stainless steel tanks, with the least possible handling. Long moderately cold stabilisation.
The wine is gently ﬁltered once before bottling.
10 years and over.
Serve between 12 and 14°C, it must be aired or carafed before tasting.
Montmain exudes a combination of ripe, candied ﬂavours and fresher saline notes: spicy ﬂoral aromas, toasted almonds, candied lemon and apple.
The palate is lively, chalky, pure, and accessible, with no artiﬁce.
