International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93($55) Pale, green-tinged color. Lively, subtly complex aromas of crushed stone, lime blossom and spearmint. The palate offers an intriguing combination of austere pineapple and mineral flavors with a fat, broad texture. Finishes brisk, very long and light on its feet, with perfumed nuances of lemon, mint and powdered stone. A superb wine in the making.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: July/August 2007
Burghound | Rating: 91A ripe and airy nose that blends ripe floral and orchard fruit aromas with round, rich and powerful medium full flavors that possess good mid-palate fat to buffer the firm, dry and long finish. This is lovely and there is a sense of class here that none of the prior wines possess to the same degree.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 4th Quarter, 2007
Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 2006 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre was another Verget wine of this vintage that came out of barrel and went into tank after 8 months. Its combination of passion fruit, herbs, and honeydew melon as well as its overt chalkiness definitely put one in mind of Loire Sauvignon. A more savory sense of minerality is striving to emerge, and there are lovely hints of brown spices, but this remains very |cool-fruited| Chablis for the vintage. A long, refined yet somehow restrained finish completes the picture of a wine that will gain in stature when paired with the appropriate cuisine, as well as with time in bottle, and which should be worth following for at least 6-8 years.Author: David Schildknecht
When he created Verget in 1990, Jean-Marie Guffens applied the very same rules as for his own production. Verget's philosophy can be summed up in one simple sentence: "the best wine comes from the best grapes." This elementary saying is the corner stone of Verget. Thus, whether in Maconnais, Chablis or Cote d'Or, the best vineyards and best terroirs are selected to produce quality wines.
