Region: Chablis, Bourgogne - France
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
Color: Healthy pale
Scents: Deep but reticent aromas of fresh apricot, gunflint and minerals. Fat, full and broad but leavened by strong stony minerality
Palate: powerful and sharply delineated. Very dry and classic, with a brisk lemony character carrying the firm, vibrant finish
Food: Pairing: Fish, seafood and shellfish, grilled or in a cream sauce. Poultry and white meat, grilled or in a cream sauce
Sitting to the right of the Grands Crus valley, the Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre is without a doubt the most complete of the Premiers Crus: it concentrates minerality, a floral touch and richness into a great vin de garde… it’s for keeps.
