B-21 Top Recommendation

Australian-born winemaker Marc Cameron, and estate-owner, François Servin – one of the more flamboyant winegrowers in Chablis – is on a qualitative hot streak; three consecutive vintages of the best juice I've tasted here. With parcels of the oldest vines comprising most of their holdings, Wine Advocate in particular insists, "They deserve a berth in your cellar alongside those prized Raveneaus and Dauvissats." Tasting the line-up, I get it. You will, too. Acidities are perfectly balanced with the fruit, but more importantly, the "Chablis" spirit is here – in buckets. What I seek, foremost – my beloved Kimmeridgian vein of salinity – weaves its way throughout François Servin's selections.


The 2017 Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru is silky, airy and gracious in this vintage. Orchard fruit, white flowers and mint all develop in this very pretty Chablis. In this vintage, the Mont de Milieu feels just a bit soft, but in exchange that gives the wine a good bit of immediacy. Exotic floral notes add flair on the expressive, inviting finish.

This starts out light, gaining concentration as the lemon, apple and lanolin flavors pick up speed and converge on the vibrant finish. Shows fine balance, length and expression, with elements of flint and mineral. Best from 2020 through 2025. 40 cases imported.

93 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator (Dec 2019)

The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Mont de Milieu reveals attractive scents of fresh peach, honeycomb, iodine and smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a gourmand, concentrated core of fruit, concluding with a saline finish. It's one of the more impactful, immediate premiers crus in the Servin range this year, and it has put on considerable weight in the last 12 months.

92 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Issue # 244 - Aug 2019)

This has very attractive focus and an elegant and fresh attitude to the nose and palate. The crisp acidity and elegant, lime and lemon flavors are very pure. Drink now.
