Totally legit. Floral, pungent, complex and delicate nose. Minerals galore and so refined. Concentrated, deep and saline. Really compact and stunningly mineral. Long, mineral finish. Very long. Terrific structure and density. So pure. Insane. Sweet minerals. So complex. — 2 days ago

Can’t quite figure this one out, like it’s closed. Quite a deep bronze colour. The fruit is dense and maybe just needs more years to unfurl. Picking up some quince and apricot on the palate, but difficult to decipher. Would be interestingly try in another 3-5 years. — 2 months ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Nose is green Apple, citrus, almost lime, rock, has a vegetal quality that Chablis can have sometimes when it’s really minerally strong. Typical salinity there. Rounder than the 2014 and much more approachable. Less acid but acid still moderate. My favorite 1er Cru vineyard in Chablis. — a month ago

Domaine Servin

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2017

Medium yellow. Meyer lemon, lemon curd, yellow delicious apple, underripe white peach, sea salt, yeasty, briny, stony minerality, and hints of cheese rind. Tart citrus and high tone minerality on the palate. Elevated acidity, 12.5% abv, medium+ finish. Importer’s notes: From the right side of the Serein River, situated right next to the Grand Cru Blanchot. A soft and elegant wine, the Montée de Tonnerre is situated in the same line as the Grand Crus. The notable white clay helps to develop intense fruit and floral aromas. The older vines add the depth and complexity in the mouth. Regarded by many as the best and most consistent Premier Cru in Chablis. Lime-clay soils with Kimmeridgian fossils. Fermentation and maturing in stainless steel tanks. — 2 months ago

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

This is as advertised, steely, sharp #chablis. Lemon, mineral nose, more reticent than I would have expected. Tastes of green apple, lemon curd, laced throughout with minerality. It paired excellently with herb lemon roasted whole chicken. — 16 days ago
