The Chardonnay grapes for this surprisingly robust white wine hail from 40-year-old vines nestled in the esteemed 1er Cru ‘Montmain’ vineyard. A cleverly crafted blend, 30% of this wine gracefully matures in seasoned oak barrels, contributing to its luxurious and velvety character.
In the glass, it boasts a brilliant pale yellow hue with hints of vibrant green. The aromatic profile reveals delicate acacia flower notes, ripe yellow nectarine, and zesty green citrus fruits. On the palate, it offers a round and creamy texture enriched with honeyed undertones that gracefully lead to a lively yet enduring finish.
Gérard and Hélène Tremblay possess 34 hectares in Chablis, with 10 dedicated to Premier and Grand Crus. As the 5th generation of Tremblay at the helm, they’ve handcrafted much of their estate, including a state-of-the-art gravity-operated winery. This thoughtful approach minimizes intervention, ensuring the fruit’s integrity remains intact, while avoiding the need for excessive manipulation or juice pumping. The wines they produce are the true essence of Chablis—resolute, pure, and brimming with mineral nuances.
