First sip and I remember why I loved the 2014 so much!

 

Bill Nanson, "The Burgundy Report" notes that the domaine serves this wine after their Premier Cru Chablis prior to their Grand Crus! Such is the weight and intensity. 

 

The clos du Chateau Tonnerre comes from vines on a modest slope with plenty of clay not unlike the Chablis Grand Cru Preuses – it is a nice terroir.

 

Great depth on the nose - a lot of Chablis characteristics but with the layers one would expect from a Premier Cru white from the Cote d'Or.

 

On the palate the wine has oyster shell combined with white stone fruit, florals and crushed stones. It is deep and vibrant. The most outstanding feature is the texture - this is seriously characterful with tangy citric acidity and stony minerality on the finish. it is long and complex and nothing less than remarkable for the price.
