Production area

Like Chablis appellation, the main bedrock comes from the Jurassic epoch, or more precisely the Kimmeridgean age (150 million years ago). The 37 hectares of the Montmains climat are located on the left bank of the Serein in the commune of Chablis.


The vines of the Montmains climat are planted on a low-lying hillside. The grapes for this cuvée come from a plot known for its marly profile and another cultivated on a stonier soil.


100% Chardonnay
