Louis Michel Premier Cru Chablis Montee de Tonnerre 2018



"Located on the right bank of the river Serein - as with the grands crus - the Montée de Tonnerre is the most prestigious of all the Chablis premiers crus. The domaine grows fruit on a total of four hectares which were planted in 1974. The soil is Kimmeridgian from the right bank; it’s sticky and features marl with marine fossils, rich in limestone pebbles. Vines with an average age of more than 40 years." - Louis Michel


"The 2018 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre is clean and precise on the nose, perhaps more in the vein of a traditional Chablis than, say, the Butteaux. The palate is fresh and lively with crisp acidity, impressive tension and a twist of sour lemon toward the finish that keeps this Chablis alert and alive. Excellent." - Neil Martin, Vinous


"Pure clear colour, the nose has a sunshine laden majesty to it without losing its character. Lots of flavour, very slightly peachy, some rose petal, but all subtly nuanced rather than heavy or heady. Fine weight of fruit on the palate. I like the way this stretches out at the finish." Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
