William Fèvre | Burgundy, France
Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre Domaine
Pale green color. Crushed-stone minerality dominates lemon and lime leaf on the nose. Very dry, lemony, saline wine with terrific energy but much more closed today than the Lys and showing less early personality. The penetrating lemon, ginger and crushed stone flavors carry through on a long, bracing yet subtle aftertaste, with a note of under ripe pineapple emerging late. The most austere 2014 to this point, and in need of extended cellaring. Séguier says that this wine has acidity around 4.5 grams per liter, with a low pH between 3.1 and 3.15.
