Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre Domaine 2014
The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre, which is vinified in 50% barrel and 50% stainless steel for six months before maturing in stainless steel only, comes from three lieux-dits with the Premier Cru. It has a very precise, harmonious, feminine bouquet that gently unfolds in the glass, just a touch of shucked oyster shell in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, a mouth-watering salinity in the mouth that compels another sip. This is a very well crafted Montée de Tonnerre.
