Chablis 1er Cru 'Mont de Milieu' by Denis Race is a great white, directly from one of the most suitable areas in all of France: Burgundy. In the 18 hectares of vineyards owned by the family, aged between 5 and 65 years, this Chablis is born which expresses itself with the typical mineral notes that envelop the nose and palate from the very first moments. The grapes, carefully harvested during the harvest phase, once arrived in the cellar are vinified in steel, where they ferment and mature for 9-10 months. Important references to mineral notes followed by more floral and fruity sensations. Good body, juicy, balanced, intense, savory even in the finish. A bottle to try.
Domaine Denis Race has been located in the heart of Chablis for 4 generations and the 18 hectares of vineyards owned by the family - aged between 5 and 65 years - have their roots in clayey-limestone soils with a chalky substrate. Located halfway between Paris and Dijon, Chablis is the northernmost appellation of Burgundy, a terroir where Chardonnay reigns supreme in 4200 hectares spread over 20 municipalities on the sides of the Serein river. From 1979 to today, Denis, with his wife Laurence and daughter Claire, have built the style of the Domaine by declining the expressions of the vineyard in 4 cuvées: Petit Chablis, Village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru, for a total of 90,000 bottles. The wines are pure voice of the Chablis: finesse, tension, pleasant freshness, savory minerality, precision and charm.
