Lilian Duplessis took over his family’s domaine in 1999, and farms 19.8 acres of vines under organics (Ecocert certified). He has two parcels in Montmains, about 60 years old, which he vinifies separately with ambient yeasts in stainless steel, where the wine rests for 12 months before spending six months more in barrels. Aside from his holding in Les Clos, he finds that these parcels in Montmains produce his longest-lived Chablis. His 2016 is among the greatest wines I’ve tasted from chardonnay vines, partly for its pure fruit essence, more for its heart-stopping delicacy. It fills the head with scents of white flower petals and white truffles, crisp apple, green pear and shellfish broth. Obtuse in its delicious angles and perspectives on a vineyard in Chablis, this is full of life, that sensation lasting outside of time as those seductive scents and flavors continue to unfold. - 98 W&S
