The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre has a floral bouquet with white petal scents infusing the citrus fruit. The palate is ripe and rounded on the entry, with peach skin and dried mango notes; the acidity is nicely judged and cuts through the waxy textured finish. This is a pithy style of Chablis, but it is well made and I can see it benefiting from another 12-24 months in bottle.
