Montee de Tonnerre, much loved by Chablis aficionados

François Servin, along with his export manager Mark Cameron, direct the operations of this 32 ha domaine. The first accounts of the Servin family in Chablis can be traced back to 1654.

Domaine Servin's 32 hectares of vineyards are situated within the boundaries of the village of Chablis, lying solely on Kimmeridgian limestone soils, which gives the wines their incomparable minerality. The majority of the vineyards are over 40 years old. The different rootstocks of these non-cloned Chardonnay plants produce a unique style of Chablis, combining concentrated flavours and intense aromas.
 
Today, the Servin "method" is a careful mix of traditional and modern techniques. Following tradition, the finest vineyards are hand harvested and each parcel is vinified individually, in order to respect the identity and authenticity of the terroir.
 
Servin make the 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre, Chablis' top Premier Cru. Many consider it of Grand Cru standard and its location next to the Grand Cru Blanchots suggests the quality should be there. It is certainly a special wine.

We have 3 cases of this wine available.
Domaine Servin Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre 2016
$69.95 a Bottle
Servin Montee label
The 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre was cropped at 38 hectoliters per hectare, thanks to some older vines around 50 years old. It has a harmonious bouquet with bright Granny Smith apples, flint and oyster shell scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a fine bead of acidity and more body and depth than the Mont de Milieu. The finish is linear and taut, with just the right amount of salinity to beckon you back for another sip. Excellent.
