93+ Point Score by The Wine Advocate

The 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is taut and concentrated, unwinding in the glass with aromas of freshly baked bread, clear honey, confit of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, it's a serious wine that will reward bottle age. The 2020 vintage is a real success here and likely the domaine's best since 2017.

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

"An elegant and wafting nose freely offers up aromas of white flowers, mineral reduction, lemon zest, quinine and ocean breeze wisps. There is fine precision and verve to the tension-filled medium-weight flavors that exude both minerality and salinity on the bitter lemon-suffused finale that is youthfully austere and quite dry. This very classy effort is potentially outstanding."

Montee de Tonnerre 1er Cru- One of Chablis' most highly regarded Premier Cru vineyards. Many would agree that this climat would be the first to be elevated to grand cru status (an unlikely event due to politics).The vineyard's overall southwesterly aspect and exceptional Kimmeridgian soils have led to its upper classification as a Premier Cru, although it shares many geological similarities to its neighboring Grand Crus.
