Domaine Gérard Duplessis — Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru 2020

Description

Known as the antiquarians of Chablis, the father and son team of Gérard and Lilian Duplessis have gained a reputation for their “immortal”, age‐worthy wines and unparalleled store of older vintages. For those who love the intense minerality and glacially slow development of great Chablis, these are wines of reference.Fourchaume’s West and Southwest exposure makes this area sun drenched and where grapes ripen early. With predominantly brown clay and only slightly stony soils, the topography is unusual in Chablis and creates complex and intense expressions.

Tasting Notes: Rchi ripe fruits – apricot and citrus with candied fruit on the palate, with a touch of blossoms. A balanced mineral texture

Serve With: Excellent with fresh, simple, seafood dishes such as raw oysters, seared scallops, and a wide range of sushi and sashimi.
