"Healthy pale color. Deep but reticent aromas of fresh apricot, gunflint and minerals. Fat, full and broad but leavened by strong stony minerality; at once powerful and sharply delineated. Very dry and classic, with a brisk lemony character carrying the firm, vibrant finish. Decant this before pulling the cork or lay it down for four or five years." –Jul-16
"A lean, steely style, with well-defined flavors of white peach, lemon and apple chiseled into a tensile frame. This stays long and succulent on the subtle aftertaste. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases made."
"The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre was a little subdued by reduction when I tasted it at the Domaine. The palate is fresh however, very tensile like the Vaulerent '14, although it might not quite have the persistence on the finish. Let's see." –August 2015
