The Montserre plot owes its name to the “Serres,” a geological formation in the form of dense superimposed limestone plates. On the surface, the ground is strewn with white pebbles.
Montserre is located at the top of the Chablis appellation and the highest point on the hill of Béru. The Montserre plot is exposed to winds on its four sides. It is bordered by a hedge of trees where birds nest and form a virtuous ecosystem.
Wines from this terroir express a strong personality, marked by nervous texture and concentration. Montserre Chablis expresses mineral, salty, and smoky notes with a hint of iodine.

"The 2021 Chablis Montserre comprises just five barrels this year due to mildew. It has a saline nose, very marine-influenced, with lemon verbena and subtle dried straw-like scents. The palate is well-balanced with a crisp line of acidity, taut and fresh, moving towards a more line-tinged, lightly spiced finish. Very fine."
