2017 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru "Montee de Tonnerre"

SKU #1414432 91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Moderate wood stops just short of intruding on the appeal of the otherwise intensely floral nose that is liberally laced with notes of oyster shell, iodine and lemon rind nuances. There is a lovely sense of refinement to the restrained and discreetly mineral-inflected flavors that deliver fine persistence and precision on the saliva-inducing finale. Excellent potential. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2018)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Concentrated lemon; spicy, toasty oak and a brooding smokiness lead to a fresh, mineral acidity and a long, rounded finish. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Some very ripe fruit here with melon, mangoes, peaches and yellow citrus fruit, all intermingling. The palate has a smooth, supple and fleshy core of attractively ripe peaches and pears. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is showing well, opening in the glass with aromas of crisp green apple, citrus oil, white flowers, pastry cream and smoke. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad-shouldered and powerful, with a deep core of ripe fruit, bright acids and saline finish. Reserved without being austere, it will reward some bottle age. (WK) 92+ Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Looking for Chablis? This is the wine you should buy. La Chablisienne is a co-op that works with many small growers in the area, and the fruit quality here is top notch. Montee de Tonnerre is widely seen as the "almost" grand cru of Chablis, and in this wine that quality shines through in abundance. Yes, its from a slightly cooler vintage, but that only adds to the classic crisp, chalky character of this Chablis. A beautiful wine, with the bones to age and a great price point!

Enough good can not be said about the wines La Chablisienne is producing! the 2016 Montee De Tonnerre was one of my favorite Chablis' that we carried and the 2017 is even more special. Not as tropical of a vintage, the year was plagued by cold weather and hail, but out of those low yields comes something truly special. The nose is flinty with clear notes of apple, a little bit of beeswax, and white blossoms. What I love so much about the wine though is the palate. It maintains a perfect acidity with bright fruit but a rich and round mouth feel. This is a must have! I know I'll be taking it home with me.

This is another tremendous bargain from Chablisienne in a great vintage from one of the region's most cherished sites. Meyer lemon, white stone, and crisp pear aromas lead to a textured but pure palate full of candied lemon rind, fresh stonefruit, and tangy apple. There's a lot in reserve, but it is showing great depth at this stage. It'll be hard to do much better in refined White Burgundy for this kind of price.

When I think about what I want from a 1er Cru Chablis the 2017 La Chablisienne Chablis 1er Cru "Montee de Tonnerre" ticks every box and then some. The nose is electric with aromas of Meyer lemons, crushed oyster shells and orchard fruits. The palate is jumping with zesty acidity, intense citrus flavors and a long, long finish. The Montee de Tonnerre vineyard is but a stone's throw away from the Grand Crus and it shows.
Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2029
