94pts Decanter

As expected from the master, Jean-Marc Brocard, this is a very fine expression of Montée de Tonnerre which marries power and elegance in the same glass. Lovely purity on the nose with wildflowers and a hint of ripe peach. The palate is concentrated yet still very precise with citrus acidity and a long, lingering mineral finish. 

94pts Tim Atkin

Pure and focused, this is both pretty and powerful. Floral top notes accompany orchard fruits dusted with vanilla and anise. The palate is succulent with fruit yet rigorously structured by pungent minerality and bracing acidity. This wine comes from 30-year-old vines and sees exclusively stainless steel during fermentation and aging. 

94pts Burghound

An elegant, pure and equally airy nose is even more elegant with its combination of white flower, sea breeze, mineral reduction and quinine scents. The crystalline middle weight flavors are almost painfully intensity with superb length on the chiseled, stony and refreshing finish. This is really quite classy and a wine that should age effortlessly. *Burghound Sweet Spot Outstanding!* 

93pts Jasper Morris 

End of year bottling. Fine clear pale lemon and lime. The bouquet shows discretion and intensity, less voluptuous than Vaulorent. Very well managed steely backbone, a liquorice note, more on white fruit. Really kicks on to finish, impressive. 

93pts Vinous

The 2020 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is clean and precise on the nose; bright and lively with citrus peel, crushed stone and lemon verbena make these aromatics irresistible. The palate is well balanced with a steely entry. Cohesive and mineral-driven, there is impressive weight and volume, wonderful persistence on the lightly spiced finish. Excellent. Tasted blind at the BIVB tasting in Chablis. 

93pts Wine Enthusiast

Subtle, smoky notes of crushed salt and limestone lend a mineral backdrop to concentrated notes of orange peel and white grapefruit in this wine. Deep in extraction yet chiseled and steely, it's a ripe expression of Chablis balanced by a refreshingly stony, briny lift.

Winemaker Notes

This wine is pale yellow with green glints. On the nose, this wine offers lemon, yellow fruit, orange peel and green peppercorn. On the palate, notes of citrus (orange and lemon zest) and is a dense, structured wine with wonderful persistence.
