The Montee de Tonnerre presents a perfect balance between fresh minerality and very ripe fruit. The mouth is warm, delicious and salty, with a spicy cinnamon finish.
Burghound (BH): 90-92
"An expressive nose of fresh, cool and reserved aromas that are elegant, airy and intensely citrus-inflected merge seamlessly into rich, intense and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess really lovely balance and superb length on the saline and markedly dry finish. This is a wine of harmony and impeccably good balance."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 91-94
"Pale yellow-green. Complex, inviting nose combines white peach, lemon, lime, crushed stone and fresh herbs. Densely packed and highly concentrated, with ineffable notes of citrus fruit, flowers, minerals, mint and herbs. Boasts a lovely balance of sucrosite and acidity. Really stains the palate and vibrates on the aromatic, mineral-tinged aftertaste."
Antonio Galloni-Vinous (AG): 92-94
"The 2012 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre is wonderfully alive in the glass. Crystalline, precise and drop-dead gorgeous, the 2012 captures the best qualities of the year. Sweet floral notes add a sense of airiness to the 2012 that is hugely appealing, while the intense minerality kicks in on the delicate, gracious finish."
