  • A full-flavoured and complex Premier Cru Chablis, delivering rich, ripe fruit enveloped in a creamy texture through to a long, sustained finish. It has a mouthwatering and linear finish. Following the challenging 2021, 2022 was a warm vintage with good yields. After a milder and drier-than-usual winter, the spring frosts made a reappearance at the end of March. However, the vines developed later than in previous years, and the damage's extent was not comparable to 2021. The exceptionally warm spring with high temperatures in May encouraged vegetation and flowering at the end of May under excellent conditions. Summer was hot and dry, resulting in healthy vineyards and excellent maturation with great balance between alcohol and acidity at harvest.

 

The grapes were harvested at optimum maturity and were fermented with natural yeasts at controlled temperatures. During fermentation, the temperature was maintained at a maximum of 21°C; then it was reduced to 18 to 20°C during malolactic conversion. The wine was matured for 18 months in stainless steel vats at 14°C, of which the first nine were on the fine lees to impart complexity and texture. It was made without oak influence to retain the purity of fruit and to let the characteristics of the Premier Cru Mont de Mileu terroir shine through.

A full-flavoured and complex 1er Cru Chablis delivers rich, ripe fruit enveloped in a creamy texture with lovely balance and a long, mouthwatering finish.

Winery

Mont de Milieu is a 1er Cru vineyard site located on the eastern banks of the Serein River and produces age-worthy wines from this exceptional terroir. The vines are planted in Kimmeridgian soils rich in clay and limestone with fossilised seashells. Domaine Goulley old Chardonnay vines were planted in 1968 and were converted to organic status in 2005, since then it has been cultivated without the use of chemical treatments. The vineyard has a south-to-southwestern exposure. It sits at 150 to 190 metres elevation, encouraging good diurnal temperature differences, enabling the grapes to accumulate good fruit concentration while retaining refreshing natural acidity from the cooler nights.
