Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu

Paul Nicolle


White Wine


Chablis 1er Cru


100% 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 allow for extra contact with the lees. This results in a richly textured Chablis with minimal oak to ensure a bright and fresh flavor.
