2018 Domaine Pinson Chablis 1er Cru "Mont de Milieu" (Previously $40)

SKU #1479112 90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Touches of the exotic are present in the form of lychee nut, dried apricot and white peach along with hints of petrol and quinine. The succulent and borderline oily medium weight plus flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the bitter lemon finish where an interesting hint of marmalade appears. This isn't classic but it is actually quite good. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis Mont de Milieu was fermented in 10% new ok and the rest stainless steel, followed by 9 months in barrel. It has a floral nose, featuring dandelion mixed with mown grass; a little earthiness develops with aeration. The palate is well balanced with better acidity than the La Forêt, and quite saline, especially toward the finish. A spicy note lingers on the aftertaste. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A flinty touch of reduction and a touch of toasty wood appear on the fresh nose of this wine. The palate presents a creamy, lemon-accented ripeness of Mirabelle layered atop sonorous hazelnut aromas and textured oak. Together, this is a balanced picture that still needs to integrate. Freshness is the bonus point. (AK) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

91-94 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "There is a slight tweak in the vinification of this flagship cuvee with 10% fermented in new barrel, otherwise all in tank. The Mont de Milieu shows a pale colour and a light green tint, consistent with the other 2018 Pinson wines. There are ripe white fruit notes to the bouquet, some power, a huge weight of white fruit on the palate and a little bit of sunshine behind. This is a weighty wine but I think it will keep the balance."

Vignerons in Chablis are calling 2018 "the best vintage in 20 years." Mont de Milieu sits immediately south of Grand Cru Montee de Tonnerres. The sun exposure here fully ripens the grapes, resulting in a more textured expression, with juicy plump fruit while that classic Chablis tension remains. Lemon, green apple, and the flinty profile of the prized Kimmeridgian soils are pronounced here. Nervy acidity zips across the tongue and the finish is endless. The best vintage in 20 years? Absolument.
