Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre 2016

45.00

 

Chardonnay

Located on the right bank of the Serein, the Grand Cru side, Montée de Tonnerre is certainly the most prestigious and sought-after of the Chablis Premier Crus. Louis Michel & Fils produces grapes on an entire slope in this location, creating powerful wines that are both complex and balanced.

“Intense and tensile wines are the calling card here, pure and unadorned by style and consistently high in quality. Indeed, I sometimes think that Louis Michel is the most underrated of Chablis’s great domaines.”

About This Wine...

“The Montée de Tonnerre is another highlight in the Louis Michel range in 2016, opening in the glass with notes of apple, citrus zest, oyster shell, wet stones and a framing of light reduction. The wine is very concentrated and stony, with a good core of fruit, superb depth and lovely tongue-tingling mineral grip on the long finish. Drink 2020 – 2030.”

93/100 Decanter 2017

 

“The 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre offers up aromas of lemon oil, lime zest and honeycomb, framed by a subtle touch of reduction. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, pure and glossy. Drink 2019 – 2030.”

92/100 Robert Parker 2018
