The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre underwent the same vinification as the Mont de Milieu. It has a complex bouquet with sea spray/flint aromas at first, a touch of Golden Delicious apple and smoked walnut. The palate is very balanced and poised with a crisp line of acidity and a generous finish that embraces tropical fruit (guava and passion fruit) but does not allow them to dominate proceedings. This is another impressive 2015 from Samuel Billaud. (NM)
Bright, light yellow. Crystallized lemon peel, wet stone and a hint of menthol on the nose. Smooth and thick in the style of the year but also benefits from racy, stony acidity. The fruit flavors of pineapple, grapefruit and lemon are enlivened by the wine's strong mineral component. Too rich to be austere but this surprisingly backward, dense, complex wine will nonetheless need time in the cellar. Very 2015 in style but in a good way. (ST)
(from a .45 ha holding in both Montée de Tonnerre proper and Chapelot). The ultra-floral nose also speaks of pear, sea breeze and plenty of mineral reduction. The rich and generous medium weight flavors possess a more refined mouth feel before concluding in a saline and bitter lemon-inflected finish that is sneaky long if not especially complex. This surprisingly forward effort is less refined than usual though it should also drink well early on.
