About This Wine...
“The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre confirms its status as one of Raveneau’s best renditions of this site over the last two decades, unfurling in the glass with a textbook bouquet of lemon oil, crisp green orchard fruit, oyster shell and anise, framed by light reduction that dissipates in the glass. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, elegantly glossy and seamlessly layered, with excellent concentration and tension at the core, concluding with a long, precise and penetrating finish. This wine is evolving at a glacial pace and is still far from reach its peak, but its quality is impossible to miss. Drink 2022 – 2045.”
95/100 Robert Parker
“This is even more elegant and more refined still with its strikingly layered nose that once again is cool, pure and airy with its floral-suffused nose that possesses a plethora of classic Chablis scents. There is an absolutely gorgeous mouth feel to the medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the explosively long, saline and impeccably well-balanced finale. 2014 is potentially a genuinely great vintage for the Raveneau Montée de Tonnerre, which as fans of this wine will immediately understand, is really saying something.”
