      There is better Chablis typicity to the aromas of pear, iodine and mineral reduction. As is often the case, the medium-bodied flavors are finer if slightly less intense on the equally stony citrus-infused finale. 90/2022+ 

    • Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre 2016 |90/100 - The World of Fine Wine - March 2018 A premier cru that can taste like a grand cru, especially in 2016, its high altitude and rocky soil a cleansing counterpoint to the warm end of the harvest: precise, fine, classy. - Michael Edwards
    • Chablis Premier Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" 2016 - James Suckling - February 2018 - 93/100I love the aromas of subtle white fruits, candied lemons and flowers. Concentrated and racy. It also has a lot of depth at the super-mineral finish that goes on and on. Drink or hold.
    • Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre 2014 - Wine Advocate - 90/100.

      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.
      Drink 2017-2027.
