DOMAINE CHANSON

Chablis 1er Cru Montmains

Premier Cru

The Premier Cru of Montmains is located on an exposed hillside southwest of the town of Chablis, and is one of the more famous Premier Crus. The cru is known to produce a slightly lighter, leaner expression of Chardonnay. This is partly due to the fact that it is angled east toward the morning sun (compared to the Grand Cru vineyards on the other side of the Serein river, which receive much more sunlight and hence give a more powerful style of wine). Domaine Chason has selected two particularly well-situated limestone sub-plots for this blend.
