2019 Domaine Billaud-Simon Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre"

SKU #1555215 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Tangy streaks of lemon and crisp yellow cherry introduce this pure-fruited, spine-tingling Chablis sourced from a premier-cru vineyard just a stone’s throw from grand cru sites. Rich and weighty yet lifted by a crush of chalk and stone, the wine is fantastic young but should hold well through 2030. (AI) Inner quote mark (1/2022)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An elegant array is comprised of cool citrus rind, mineral reduction, quinine and white flowers. I very much like the intensity and fine detail to the highly energetic and overtly stony middle weight flavors that terminate in a clean, bone-dry and youthfully austere finale. This is lovely, and I particularly like the balance, though in contrast to the Fourchaume, this is a wine that's going to need at least a few years first. *Burghound Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (10/2021)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Classic Montée de Tonnerre with some driving mineral notes and firm acidity to keep the ripe fruit in balance. Very elegant with stony, flinty notes on the aftertaste adding an extra dimension to the pristine tree-fruit flavour. Drinking well already but with a long future ahead. Drinking Window 2022 - 2028. (AH) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is well-defined on the nose, offering crushed stone and subtle earthy scents; a faint touch of white flowers emerges with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and linear. A reserved, lightly spiced Chablis with a brisk, quite saline finish. It just needs a little more in the way of persistence. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2021)

K&L Notes

91-94pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "From three plots of, which Pied d’Aloue is the oldest (1935). Clear pale fresh colour. Very intense if quite backward, Steelier than the Mont de Milieu with superb grip at the back. Not just the intensity, but the balance is there. This is a Chablis of enormous power and intensity, which finishes on a crisp marine bedrock. No wood on this one. Tasted: September 2020."
