2010 Domaine Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre"

SKU #1238056 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Simply put, the 2010 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre is pure class. Gorgeous detail and pure nuance are the hallmarks. White peaches, lime, slate and crushed rocks emerge from the glass, but here, too, it is the wine's textural finesse that impresses above all else. A long, polished finish rounds things out beautifully. The Montée de Tonnerre is utterly impeccable from start to finish. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2012)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark *Outstanding* Here the components of the nose are similar to those of the Fourchaume yet here it is notably more floral. There is impressive complexity to the dense, rich and concentrated flavors that offer plenty of oyster shell and iodine hints on the balanced and stunningly persistent bone dry finish. This is really lovely juice and well worth your attention. Inner quote mark (9/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Zesty, limey and bright, the Michel 2010 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre is suffused with mouthwatering and intriguing chicken stock and oyster liqueur that milk my salivary glands for all that they are worth. Silken in texture yet bright, it finishes with invigorating cherry pit piquancy, tingling refreshment, and at least hints at the sort of vibratory energy I associate with Les Clos.

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale yellow. Captivating, slightly high-toned nose combines papaya, orange blossom and oyster shell minerality. Sweet, round and smooth, but with enticing orange-y acidity and serious underlying structure giving the mid-palate superb energy. Finishes very long and tactile but youthfully tight. Gicqueau-Michel says he'd give this ten years in the cellar. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very pure nose. Racy and wonderful polished texture. Yet with quite a bit tucked in for the future. Inner quote mark (1/2012)
