I love the 2018 Montmains from Domaine Fèvre, as the wine is laser-like in its focus and synthesizes ripe, pure fruit and lovely underlying minerality. The vibrant bouquet delivers scents of fresh lime, tangerine, chalky minerality, spring flowers and a nice touch of citrus zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent focus and grip and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. First class Montmains!
The 2018 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru is more malic and steely on the nose compared to the Vaulorent or Fourchaume, the scents of sea spray, Granny Smith apples and limestone gaining good intensity with modest aeration. The palate is well balanced with a penetrating, spicy entry, very saline, almost peppery; hints of asparagus and kiwi fruit emerge toward the finish. I appreciate the austerity of this Montmains in what was a warm growing season. One of Fevre’s more divisive wines, but personally, I like this. (NM)
Revealing notions of green apple, white flowers, spring blossom and iodine, the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains is medium to full-bodied, tangy and tensile, with promising outlines and a mineral finish. I expect it to perform very well once it fleshes out with further élevage. (WK)
A more elegant and quite floral suffused nose evidences a lovely array of classic Chablis elements on the mostly white orchard fruit aromas. I very much like the intensity and detail of the medium weight flavors that display a mild touch of sweetness on the sappy finale. This too isn't especially complex though it may add more with time.
