2017 Domaine Pinson Chablis 1er Cru "Mont de Milieu"

SKU #1433925 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Another highlight in this range, the 2017 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru sizzles with real tension and energy. The Mont de Milieu is not quite as expressive as some of the other wines in the range, but that won't be an issue in time. Dried pear, crushed rocks, mint and dried flowers all come alive in a Chablis endowed with terrific verve and plenty of stylishness. I loved it. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here too there is a whiff of wood present on the expressive and vaguely exotic nose that offers up notes of algae, iodine, white peach and seaweed. As is usually the case with this wine there is excellent volume, power, muscle and mid-palate density to the medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the almost painfully intense mineral-driven finish that flashes a bit of youthful austerity. This is terrific and offers excellent upside development potential. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2018)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tight core of fresh lemons and a surrounding aura of honeysuckle and wet stones, making for a very classic impression. Good concentration, too. Drink in the next three years. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Creamy, leesy nose lifted by herby citrus fruit. Like the Forêt, needs time to mesh but everything is in place. 17/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Vinified in barrel, with 10% new wood, then 2-4 year old barrels for the elevage. Here the wood integrates very well, adding a dimension of intensity but not boise. This is the flagship 1er Cru delivering a fabulous wine on the palate, with some yellow fruit but particularly a mineral intensity throughout. The wood hardly shows at all, though it may return during the wine's adolescence. Immense density behind. Tasted May 2018."
