Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montee Tonnerre 2016 Product #33059 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montee Tonnerre 2016 Dom Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montee Tonnerre 2016

Separated from the Grand Crus of Chablis by just a narrow ravine and sharing the Grand Crus' classic Kimmeridgian soils, Montee de Tonnerre is universally acclaimed as the best 1er Cru.  And at Louis Michel, it always delivers the grip, minerality, aging potential and very near the concentration of an outstanding Grand Cru - at a fraction of the price.  It's a bit quiet now - decant if you want to drink it tonight - but already shows fantastic purity, sizzlingly fresh green and white fruit, and loads of salty, stony, minerality.  Best 2020-2026.

“Light-medium yellow. A step up in aromatic complexity from the rest of the Louis Michel premier crus, but with its shy fruit element currently overshadowed by smoky oyster-shell minerality. Similarly, the wine's stone and citrus fruit flavors are dominated in the early going by rich, saline, rocky minerality. This structured wine finishes precise, shapely, firm and long. Excellent potential here, but this will need cellaring.”  Vinous (Tanzer) 90-92 points
