Tasting Notes

Burghound, October 2018, Score: 93

Here the petrol character displayed by several of the preceding wines is quite prominent on the acacia blossom, citrus rind and white-fleshed fruit scents. I very much like the mouth feel of the sleekly muscular, intense and sappy medium weight flavors that possess plenty of mouth coating dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm acid spine that shapes the well-balanced and impressively long finish. By the normal standards of this wine, the 2016 MdT is much more robust than usual though still impressive.

Region

Chablis, White Burgundy

Chablis is world famous for its fine white wines produced from the Chardonnay grape. The best vineyards are perched above the winding Serein river and are south or southwest facing ensuring better ripeness in this cooler climate. It has four appellation levels. Petit Chablis is the most modest and simple followed by Chablis, which is the largest and most prominent. Premier cru Chablis is the third largest appellation and encompasses almost 40 different climats or vineyards including the famed Montée de Tonnerre, Fourchaumes and Mont de Milieu. The most noble of all Chablis are the grand crus of which there are 7 climats in total Bougros, Les Preuses, Vaudésir, Grenouilles, Valmur, Les Clos and Blanchot. The wines of Chablis have remained some of the best value in the world, particularly their superb grand crus which can easily cost 50% less than its closest revered white grand cru neighbour, Corton Charlemagne.
