Appellation

Chablis 1er Cru

Variety

Chardonnay

Mont de Milieu is a rather cool premier cru site just north of Fleys heading towards the cluster of Grand Crus. With comparatively less sun than other premier crus, Mont de Milieu always shows a higher acidity and racy profile. Wines from Paul Nicolle are fermented and aged in large horizontal stainless steel tanks which allows extra contact with the lees. This results in a richly textured Chablis with minimal oak to ensure a bright and fresh flavor.
