90-92 points by Burghound

There is enough reduction at present to push the underlying fruit to the background though it shouldn't last once the wine is racked. Otherwise, there is excellent density and better intensity to the medium weight flavors that are attractively refined while exuding a bracing salinity on the balanced finale.

90 Point Score by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A charming, fine-boned wine, the 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Montmain bursts with aromas of clear honey, waxy citrus fruit, green apple and freshly baked bread. Medium-bodied, satiny and precise, it's the most immediate premier cru in the Louis Michel range.

 

ALSO: 90-92 points by Inside Burgundy-Jasper Morris (MW-Master Of Wine)

Montmains 1er Cru-Premier Cru refers to a medium-sized mountain that is lower than two surrounding peaks.With its southeast and northeast exposure, this long and narrow Climat enjoys the early morning sun. Open to the wind, Montmains is colder than other Climats. it also has some of the heaviest concentrations of the Kimmerigean Marls giving it a pronounced minerality.
