This 1er Cru is located on the left bank of the Serein river; a river that cuts Chablis into two reasonably distinct zones. The south-facing Montmains hill has three lieux-dits sites within: from east to west, they are Montmains (the original parcel), Fôret, and Butteaux, all of which can be labeled as Montmains. The Collet’s makes this wine from soil exclusively from the Montmain lieu-dit, as well as Fôret and Butteaux, two very different wines. This lieu-dit is likely the stoniest 1er Cru within the entire range of Chablis’ 1er Crus. There is nearly nothing that sits between the Kimmeridgian marl bedrock and the roots, but an extremely shallow topsoil of clay and stone. There are five small parcels inside this lieu-dit that comprise this wine.
