Pale, green-tinged yellow. Classic Chablis aromas of citrus peel and oyster-shell minerality. Supple, fine-grained and very harmonious, with firm minerality lending shape and finesse to the citrus and spice flavors. This is more Montée de Tonnerre than 2013 in style, which is all to the good. Finishes smooth but with noteworthy energy and grip and lingering minerality. This very precise wine transcends its vintage.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2026

Tasted blind at the annual â€oeBurgfest” tasting in Brouilland. The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre has a more reserved, perhaps earthier bouquet than its peers, more introverted but I appreciate the definition and it appears to gain vigor in the glass as it aerates. The palate is fresh and crisp with green apple, pear and bitter lemon notes. There is good weight here even if it just lacks the persistence that I would have expected. Tasted May 2016.
