Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre 2014 (3800)

France - Chablis

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. Vines with an average age of 40 years.

AUD$67.50 Sorry, sold out

Professional Reviews


This too is quite floral yet at the same time manages to be more elegant with its wafting nose of iodine, apple and oyster shell hints. There is terrific energy to the refined, detailed and saline-inflected medium-bodied flavours where an intense minerality adds lift to the clean and dry finish. This is arguably classier than the Fourchaume though not necessarily more complex or persistent.


Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

Subtle, pure, scented nose combines stone fruits, crushed rock, spices and a touch of flinty minerality. Big and rich in the mouth but still a bit youthfully compact, conveying a dusty impression of extract from its strong underlying minerality. Finishes tactile and long.


Tim Atkin MW

Showing the purity that's typical of Guillaume Michel's style - oak is rarely if ever used - this superb wine comes from a single four-hectare parcel. Saline, yet showing the richness of the right bank with a stony bite and layers of flavour.
