2018 Louis Michel & Fils Chablis Premier Cru Montee De Tonnerre
Located on the right bank of the river Serein - as with the grands crus - the Montée de Tonnerre is the most prestigious of all the Chablis premiers crus. The domaine grows fruit on a total of four hectares which were planted in 1974. The soil is Kimmeridgian from the right bank; it’s sticky and features marl with marine fossils, rich in limestone pebbles.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a faint glimmer of green around the edges and a watery hue. Elevated fresh pear and green apple aromas have a slatey overlay picking up accents of lime, chalk and mineral along the way. The vibrant yet beautifully textured palate shows excellent drive and intensity with flavours of pear, subtle lime and citrus filling the mouth. Fine slatey mineral back drop with notions of oyster shell and fresh herb infusions also apparent. Dry racy finish with a long, generous yet precise aftertaste.
