2014 Domaine Billaud-Simon Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre"

SKU #1266634 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A still relatively primary and attractively spicy nose freely liberates notes of citrus, floral, wet stone, oyster shell and iodine. There is a fine blend of power and finesse with outstanding punch, complexity and balance on the beautifully lingering and markedly dry finish. This classic Montée de Tonnerre of refinement and grace is maturing gradually and while it could be approached no, I will continue to hold my bottles. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is crisp, with apple, plum and lemon flavors, accented by floral and mineral notes. Delicate, finishing with fine harmony and length. (BS) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is a knockout wine from what is essentially now the Chablis branch of Maison Faiveley under winemaker Olivier Bailly. It has a lifted, slightly floral bouquet with attractive apple blossom, gooseberry and granitic aromas that are well defined. The palate is fresh and vibrant, very good salinity here with a tensile, steely and almost penetrating finish. This is a great Montée de Tonnerre and it comes highly recommended. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Hints of yellow fruits on the nose, with complicating notes of white pepper and crushed oyster shell; smells austere. A bit sweeter on entry than the Mont de Milieu but even more backward and stony today in spite of a roundness of texture. In a more refined style, with a hint of orange oil giving this bone-dry premier cru a sexy suggestion of sweetness. Finishes with penetrating minerality. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Saturated with sweet baked-apple flavor, this is a robust and friendly take on Montée de Tonnèrre. It’s rounded by almond scents and hints of caramel, while the freshness of the wine keeps it lifted and clean. Inner quote mark (4/2017)
