RATINGS

92The Wine Advocate

...combination of rich Chardonnay fruit and steely acid, the Chablis Montee de Tonnerre roars across the palate with clean notes of flint and slate tailing off to reveal an excellent length...a textbook Chablis,..Medium-to-full-bodied,..

92Wine Spectator

...Like a roller coaster, you can only hold on as it turns and twists your palate, with pure, elegant, well-knit flavors of lemon, fruit, toasted oak and flowers that hold on for a long, intense finish. Perhaps the best Chablis in 1995.

PRODUCER

Verget

Maison Verget is a negociant based in Macon, Burgundy. It was founded in 1990 by Jean-Marie Guffens, a Belgian who moved to France in 1976 with his wife to learn French and study wine. After studying viticulture in France and working for other winemakers, they started making their own wines under the label Domain Guffens-Heynen. But Jean-Marie also wanted had ideas about being a negociant, and today his idealistic and demanding approach to vinification have made the Verget “one of Burgundy’s most talked-about sources of white Burgundy,” according to Robert M. Parker Jr. Verget’s broad portfolio of wines win high ratings from Parker and others.

It is regrettable that its reputation is not better known…” The soil is a mixture of limestone, clay and fossilized oyster shells.
