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.

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.
