    • Chablis D1840 2022 - James Suckling - 90/100

      Striking nose of rhubarb, white peaches and red apples. Juicy and crisp with plenty of bright fruit on the medium-bodied palate, then a touch of tannin anchors it in the crisp but not tart finish. From a parcel below the Montee de Tonerre 1er cru. Drink now. (Stuart Pigott, June 2024)

    • Chablis D1840 2022 - International Wine Challenge 2024 - Bronze Medal

      Fresh lemon and citrus aromas. Clean and fresh with zesty refreshing finish. (UK)

    • Chablis D1840 2022 - Burgundy Report, Bill Nanson - "The length impresses"

      Bottom of Chapelots under Montée de Tonnerre. - separate bottling for this since 2018. 25% elevage in barrel 

      The nose has depth. In the mouth also a little sucrosity and some herb too. I like the shape of this and the length impresses. (UK, March 2024)

    • Chablis D1840 2021 - James Suckling - July 2023 - 90/100

      Nicely focused with notes of almond cream, pineapple and pie crust. Salty hints. It's medium-bodied, textured and dialled back on the fruit. Drink now.

    • Chablis D1840 2021 - Vert de Vin - June 2023 - 15.5 / 91

      The wine has a pale lemon color. The nose is aromatic and offers a pronounced minerality. It expresses notes of slightly saline limestone, combined with notes of ripe green fruit and citrus (green apple, Reine Claude plum, lime, lemon, lime zest), as well as delicate herbaceous (blackcurrant leaf, lemon thyme) and floral notes (elderflower, acacia), accompanied by some spiciness and delicate brioche notes (vanilla, fresh brioche, nutmeg) with a fine hint of honey in the background. On the palate, the wine offers a tangy, chiseled structure, with sharp acidity and tart citrus flavors. It expresses notes of lime, lemon juice, lime zest, green apple, gooseberries, tangy green plum, as well as herbaceous touches of crushed mint, cut grass, a floral hint (acacia), as well as a fine salinity, spicy and yeasty notes on the finish (a very light touch of nutmeg, vanilla, fresh yeast). The finish is long, with lively acidity, notes of honey and brioche associated with acidulous citrus flavours. A wine with freshness, liveliness and complexity.

    • Chablis "D1840" 2021 - Burgundy Report Bill Nanson - February 2023

      A more direct nose but one of fine purity and minerality. Calmer but still energetic - a burst of flavour in the middle and shrinking quickly in the finish. Then there's holding with lots of interest. This will be super. 'The left bank wines are all tank elevage, the right bank wines are 'worked' with a little barrel'. 25% elevage in barrel.

    • Chablis D1840 2020 - Wine Review Online - 92/100 - Dec 2022

      Simonnet-Febvre is both a négociant and a grower, owning Chablis village plots, Premier Cru "Mont de Milieu", and Grand Cru "Preuses". The D1840 bottles comes from their vineyards that have a village appellation. Fresh and stone-y, it's a fantastic village wine, providing more excitement than many growers' 1er Cru. A citrus buzz in the finish just amplifies it appeal. Don't miss it.

    • Chablis D1840 2020 - July 2022 - James Suckling - 90/100

      The bright pear and white-peach aromas are complemented by lovely citrusy freshness that makes this medium-bodied, regular Chablis appealing and refreshing. Made entirely from estate-grown fruit. Everything fits very neatly, including just a hint of wood. Drink now.
