Zesty, limey and bright, the Michel 2010 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre is suffused with mouthwatering and intriguing chicken stock and oyster liqueur that milk my salivary glands for all that they are worth. Silken in texture yet bright, it finishes with invigorating cherry pit piquancy, tingling refreshment, and at least hints at the sort of vibratory energy I associate with Les Clos. Look to follow this still youthful-acting beauty through 2020.

Here the components of the nose are similar to those of the Fourchaume yet here it is notably more floral. There is impressive complexity to the dense, rich and concentrated flavors that offer plenty of oyster shell and iodine hints on the balanced and stunningly persistent bone dry finish. This is really lovely juice and well worth your attention.

Very pure nose. Racy and wonderful polished texture. Yet with quite a bit tucked in for the future.

Simply put, the 2010 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre is pure class. Gorgeous detail and pure nuance are the hallmarks. White peaches, lime, slate and crushed rocks emerge from the glass, but here, too, it is the wine's textural finesse that impresses above all else. A long, polished finish rounds things out beautifully. The Montee de Tonnerre is utterly impeccable from start to finish. - Antonio Galloni
