This wine is a hermit, as it were, characterised by barrenness and austerity, by pure chalkiness and iodine-like saltiness, by gripping citric coolness and acidity. Everything here is bright, citrusy and crystalline like a mountain stream.

Wine information

The highest point of the hill Béru is Montserre, so to speak the summit of the Serres, a particular geological formation consisting of a superposition of very angular fossil limestone plates. The Montserre Sans Soufre matures almost one year longer in the barrel than the likewise little sulphured Montserre.

Color

pale straw yellow

Nose

Whether with little or no added sulfur, the Chablis Montserre is as pure as Chablis can only be. It smells iodine, furthermore of limes as well as salt lemons and rocks. At Sans Soufre a note of fresh short pastry comes in, as if someone has baked a lemon tart here. Everything here is bright, citrusy and crystalline like a mountain stream.

Palate

This wine is a hermit, as it were, characterized by barrenness and austerity, by pure chalkiness and iodine saltiness, by gripping citric coolness and acidity structure. The additional year in large wood has given the Sans Soufre The wine has been given a plus of fineness as well as elegance and finest creaminess, without having lost a single bit of its gripping nature. Here, too, the phenomenal salt-acid combination takes effect and provides for overwhelmingness.
