" A hugely appealing wine, the 2012 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre brings together all of the crystalline nuance and verve typical of this great site along with gorgeous textural richness. Lemon peel, white flowers and crushed rocks are laced into the wiry, tense finish. In 2012, the Montee de Tonnerre has an extra kick of richness that is highly appealing."

" An expressive nose of fresh, cool and reserved aromas that are elegant, airy and intensely citrus-inflected merge seamlessly into rich, intense and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess really lovely balance and superb length on the saline and markedly dry finish. This is a wine of harmony and impeccably good balance."

" Good pale yellow. Nuanced, high-pitched aromas of lemon zest, crushed stone, spices, jasmine and rose petal. Juicy and incisive in the mouth, showing terrific cut and perfumed lift to the flavors of citrus and stone fruits, flowers, mint and minerals. Excellent definition and grip here, and precise and long on the finish. Still very young and in need of bottle again."

Jancis Robinson 16.5/20!
"Riper citrus on the nose compared with the Secher. Initially fuller in the mouth but quite austere on the palate. Complete and lively with moderate length."
Jancis Robinson

"Rich and mouthfilling, yet also balanced and bright, showing peach, melon, apple and lemon flavors. The elements converge on the fresh finish, revealing a hint of spice and mineral."
Wine Spectator

"Pure terroir expression with intense flavour of stone, minerals and flint. A linear Chablis that is classic Montee de Tonnerre. Fairly long finish."
