2018 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1474649 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is very tight, but it was also racked just prior to this tasting, and Montée de Tonnerre is naturally a site that yields intensely mineral wines. Bright citrus, mint, chalk and white pepper open up gradually in a brisk, focused wine that needs time to show at its best. The Fèvre Montée de Tonnerre is a blend of three climats: Pied d'Aloup (east-facing), Chapelot (south-facing) and Côte de Bréchain (west-facing, vines planted in 1936).

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An elegant, pure and relatively airy nose combines plenty of Chablis typicity with notes of white orchard fruit, citrus, algae and iodine wisps. There is very good minerality and delineation to the lacy and refined yet punchy flavors that deliver sneaky good length where the intensity really builds from the mid-palate to the driving finish.

93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Montée de Tonnerre from Domaine Fèvre is simply outstanding. The bouquet is flat out gorgeous already, wafting from the glass in a blend of lime, apple, pear, citrus zest, a complex base of chalky minerality, a touch of beeswax and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep,. full-bodied, complex and rock solid at the core, with great backend mineral drive, fine focus and grip and a long, lifted and perfectly balanced finish.

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre opens in the glass with notes of white flowers, crisp orchard fruit, orange rind, oyster shell and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with good cut and tension and a pure, nicely delineated finish. It marks a return to form for this premier cru, which had been hit by hail and frost for the last handful of successive vintages but was finally spared in 2018. (WK) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

K&L Notes

90-93 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Just assembled and has not fallen clear yet. The nose is rather hidden as well as a result. Fat and concentrated on the palate with an attractive weight behind, opens out to a pleasing ripeness. Less acidity but that’s a little bit the style of the wine. Just a little bit of a reductive twang at the back."
