    Chablisienne's 1er Crus are some of the best buys for white wine in any given vintage, and the 2016 Montee de Tonnerre is no exception. Attractive aromatics of wet stone, crisp pear, and lemon zest give way to a palate that is fresh, superbly textured, and full of refreshing red apple and key lime. Bright acidity carries the finish. This is the kind of wine that will thrill anybody who has a soft spot for balanced, refined, and classic Chardonnay.

    This here is a perfect example of a truly fine wine with an astonishingly low price point. This Premier Cru does see barrel time, which imparts sensuous texture but not the oak flavor, giving this more richness than a village level Chablis yet the wine remains bright and fresh. There are lovely layers of ripe apple, stone fruit and lemon, all wrapped up in a fantastic, flinty finish. Gorgeous.

    Elegant and sophisticated example of the top 1er Cru vineyard in Chablis and an unbelievable value! With delicate acidity, gentle yet deep and rich in flavor texture, this Chablis is easy to drink and undeniably delicious! Orchard fruit and white flower aromas and flavors combined with fresh mineral notes create a beautiful wine experience!

    La Chablisiènne has made a wonderfully gorgeous wine here! A great combination of classic Chablis with clear and pure orchard fruits and a more modern interpretation of the fruits being a little riper than you may normally find from Chablis. The palate has a very lively acidity that zips through everything, along with that slight flinty / chalky minerality that makes Chablis wines so unique and enjoyable.

    Wow! Are you kidding me?? Montee de Tonnerre for under $30?? The best 1er Cru vineyard in Chablis nestled right next to Grand Crus Les Clos & Blanchots the Montee de Tonnerre drinks like a Grand Cru Chablis at a fraction of the price. Gorgeous notes of white flowers, kumquats, sweet cream and sea breeze rise from the glass. The palate is loaded with zesty citrus notes nicely accentuated with Asian pear and spice along with zippy acidity and firm tannins. A stunning Chablis value for under $30.
    Top Value! Drink from 2019 to 2024

    La Chablisienne always offers amazing value and the 2016 MdT is no exception. Mid weight and just a touch modern, it still displays the classic crisp apple and ripe pear fruit with a wonderful flinty Chablis note and decent acidity. Lightly spiced on the end and offering an enticing texture there is much to love here.
