I normally prefer the crispy, fresh style of Chablis but I also like this powerful Mont de Milieu, a delicious wine made by Vincent Laroche at his family vineyard in the small village of Fleys (another Laroche family than the one one thinks of usually in the context of Chablis). A very small part, 5 %, of the wine is aged in barrels.
“I don’t want the wine to get oak aromas”, says Vincent, “but the oak gives some oxygen to the wine and it opens up the aromas.”
The wine is fresh despite the full bodied character and there are some butter scotch and honey in the aftertaste. Drink with a fish or a fowl. A creamy sauce will be perfect.
