Chablis 1er cru Beauroy, Domaine de la Motte 2019
Henri Michaut planted his first vines in 1946. The Michauts Premier Cru Chablis regularly gets stars in the Hachette Wine Guide. The hot, beautiful 2018 vintage was a welcome relief for weather-plagued Chablis producers and the quality is excellent.
Its hard to find a good Premier Cru Chablis under £25.00. Good Chablis is one of lifes pleasures and this one will not disappoint.
How does the wine taste?
The grapes of this lovely Chablis are sourced from Premier Cru vineyards. It is rich and full with ripe citrus and white fruit. It has the flinty minerality that one expects from a really good Premier Cru Chablis, with a subtle toasty note from a touch of oak. The citric flavours and minerality remain prominent over a very long finish. Delicious.
What do the critics say?
"Tasted just over a year ago, this wine really impressed: a Chablis Premier Cru with a touch of creamy oak to smooth the pristine Chablis apple and flint character. Now, the wine tastes just as sleek and refined, but that vivacious core of steely precision is even more evident, wrapped in a sheen of oatmeal but riveting in its freshness and vitality. A great price for a Premier Cru of this undoubted quality."
Tom Cannavan, TheWinePages.com
"The Premier Cru vineyards of Beauroy lie to the north west of the town of Chablis. This is a strikingly good-value example, with a leesy (sic) roundness and texture. It retains the classic Chablis steel, is well balanced, and shows citrus, appley fruit."
Wine of the Month, Decanter Magazine
"Good golden fruit, good substance too, the fruit buoyed up on the palate by all that oak as well. A nice midpalate texture, attractive, a touch honeyed, and a nicely defined finish.a good wine. 16+/20"
