Description2010 Domaine Francois Raveneau Montee de Tonnerre, Chablis Premier Cru, Chablis, Burgundy, France
VinousThe 2010 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru comes from one of Raveneau’s strongest vineyards, and it does not disappoint. The bouquet is steely and aloof at first, then suddenly turns more crystalline, bearing a strong marine influence with hints of kelp and sea spray. The balanced, penetrating palate displays a perfect line of acidity. Everything is in the right place here, culminating in what I wrote down as a “rocky” finish. Dare I say that this is about as good as Chablis can get?
Wine AdvocateNotes of oatmeal, waxy citrus rind, crisp yellow apples and white flowers introduce the 2010 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and multidimensional wine that has begun to acquire some supplemental texture with bottle age while remaining lively and precise, concluding with an elegantly chalky finish. The 2010 isn't as powerful as the brooding 2012 served alongside, nor is it as tensile and incisive as the 2014, but it is on a similar qualitative level and numbers among the vintage's high points.
