Country: France, Burgundy
Tasting Notes: The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre was matured in 50% stainless steel and 50% oak barrels for 15 months. It has an attractive bouquet, with scents of apricot blossom, lemon thyme and struck flint, that is detailed and gains intensity in the glass. The palate is well balanced, with a viscous opening—a smear of honey over citrus fruit-tinged with mango - though it retains decent delineation and poise on the finish.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
