Domaine Louis Michel & Fils Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre" 2016

Grape(s)        :  Chardonny

Description   :

 The Montée de Tonnerre is another highlight in the Louis Michel range in 2016, opening in the glass with notes of apple, citrus zest, oyster shell, wet stones and a framing of light reduction. The wine is very concentrated and stony, with a good core of fruit, superb depth and lovely tongue-tingling mineral grip on the long finish.Drinking Window 2020 - 2030.

This is also distinctly floral in character with its cool and exceptionally pretty aromas of citrus, pear, apple and seaweed wisps. The textured, seductive and concentrated middle weight flavors are also quite sophisticated with slightly better depth on the balanced finale. Even so, this too should benefit from a few years of cellaring so more complexity can develop here as well.  (11/2017) 90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound
