RATINGS

91+ Stephen Tanzer

Reticent, very pure aromas of citrus skin, apple, wet stone, spearmint and spices. Spicy, quite dry and uncompromising; dense, fat, full and minerally.

90Wine Spectator

Fine expression in this Chablis. It's ripe and focused, evoking lemon, mineral and even red berry aromas and flavors, picking up a hint of vanilla on the finish.

90Burghound.com

Ripe aromas of orchard fruits, especially apple and appealing spice undertones lead to rich, powerful, sappy flavors that have the best acidity and sense of minerality of any wine to this point plus an almost painfully intense finish.

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.
