Domaine François Raveneau Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

$209

The 2011 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre caresses the palate with layers of subtle, understated fruit. A hint of spice develops in the glass, adding further dimensions of character, but the Montee de Tonnerre remains first and foremost a wine of exquisite finesse and balance. This is a super-impressive showing. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Not the greatest Chablis but still very expensive. Maritime, saline, superficial.

A limpid,oily nose with a fresh blast of rock pool and lime. Really lifted and fresh with citrus, limestone and delicate minerality. Quite long.

Sublime sophistication, Raveneau's 2011 Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre shows its pedigree with complex aromas of roasted pear, earth, hazelnut, iodine, and smoke. The influence of Kimmeridgian soils is evident on the palate, one that is both expansive and neatly tailored, swathed in stone fruit and lemon curd tightly bound by a mineral spine. The finish is intense, meandering and tipped in fleur de sel and dried herbs, especially tarragon.
