Chablis 1er Cru `Côte de Léchet` Les Hauts de Milly 2019

£31.50

The family behind Les Hauts de Milly, Didier Defaix and Hélène Jaeger-Defaix, own vineyards in both Chablis and Rully through marriage, along with vineyards in the Côte d’Auxerre just south of Chablis. All the vineyards are farmed organically.

The Kimmeridgian clay soils in Côte de Léchet lend this wine a distinct saline edge and powerful character. The nose is fragrant with aromas of white flowers, lemon and apricot and hints of gunflint. On the palate are intense citrus fruit flavours and a persistent salinity which carry through to the long finish.

The obvious match for a great white wine like this is a great roast chicken.  Seafood lovers may be tempted by fillets of sea bream with a tapenade crust or seared scallops or baked crab.  Epoisses and Soumaintrain are two Burgundian cheeses that compliment this wine beautifully.
