RATINGS

94Wine Spectator

Opulent and full-bodied, this combines the flinty, mineral character of Chablis with honey and baking bread aromas and flavors, all backed by a bracing acidity

92Stephen Tanzer

Deep, complex nose melds grapefruit, powdered stone, apple and mint. A step up in concentration and texture from the foregoing premier crus. Thick, suave and seamless; dry, classy and rich. Finishes very long, with a flavor of wet stone.

18Jancis Robinson

...Lovely zesty, savoury nutty minerality on the nose. Woody rather than oaky. Very savoury on the palate, dry and powerful yet fresh and lithe. A hint of lime on the finish shows just how fresh it still is...

90Burghound.com

..Interesting notes of fennel, green Chablis fruit and straw introduce medium weight, slightly austere, understated, precise flavors that deliver plenty of complexity and length..

REGION

France, Burgundy, Chablis, Montee de Tonnerre

Montee de Tonnerre is a 15-acre Premier Cru parcel just east of the village of Chablis and just south of the Grand Crus. Montee de Tonnerre includes the important climats of Chapelot, Les Chapelots, Pied d’Aloup and Coted de Brechain. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “in blind tastings, this microparcel is often judged to be a Grand Cru. It is regrettable that its reputation is not better known…” The soil is a mixture of limestone, clay and fossilized oyster shells.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, Chablis Premier Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
