Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre 2013 - Domaine du Chardonnay, Etienne Boileau

Montée de Tonnerre is one of the most prestigious climate from Chablis. This cuvée has the specificity to be aged in oak barrels for 20%, which is quite unusual - although this practice is gaining ground in the region. This gives a more structured wine, with aromas of white fruit and a nutty finish. A beautiful complexity for this Premier Cru - definitely worth it for under £20 a bottle. Highly recommended!

What experts say  
  
92/100 "Light yellow. The nose immediately exudes a mineral character backed by white-fleshed fruits. Well-structured, full-bodied palate, still a little fiery. All the prerequisite components are there - structure, exuberance and persistency. Just needs time."

Petit Chablis is the ideal bottle to discover this unique region. Coming from a single parcel - which is pretty rare for a Petit Chablis - it is a simple, light-bodied white, with lovely notes of citrus and white fruits. It has the mineral touch of a Chablis and a slightly salty finish. Perfect for after-work drinks. Very good value here!

This Chablis is the main production of the domain, and receives the greatest possible care - especially when volume produced is low! It is a very typical Chablis, with a refreshing acidity, notes of citrus, almonds, white flowers and a lemony finish. Very well-made wine which we loved... definitely a great catch.

Vosgros is the first Premier Cru we have selected. Coming from a very tiny parcel, it shows a nice complexity and flavours of citrus, honeysuckle and lime. A great balance between aromas and acidity, reflecting its terroir. A delicate and delicious Chablis Premier Cru under £20, worth every penny.
