An exceptional quality 1er Cru Chablis from an extraordinary producer and site, this is quickly becoming one of the best value Burgundies imported into Australia each year. Equal Highest Scoring Chablis in 2016 - Decanter Magazine After airing, this wine presents a perfect balance between fresh minerality and very ripe fruit. The mouth is warm, delicious and salty, with a spicy cinnamon finish. Located on the right back of the river Serein, the same as for the Grand Crus, the Montée de Tonnerre is certainly the most prestigious and well-renowned of all the Chablis Premier Crus.

This is a wine of power, energy and breadth, made from 3ha of vines in this fine right bank site just south of the grands crus. Like Michel’s village Chablis it’s still an infant, but you can sense its density and power quietly building like water behind a dam. Elemental, brooding notes reminiscent of plant sap and ground stone lurk in that resonant, aromatic inarticulacy, yet its mute force succeeds in seeming concentrated, close-grained and sheer in the mouth.
