2017 Chablis, 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre, Domaine Samuel Billaud (Magnum)

France Burgundy Chablis

The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is also performing well, though it doesn't attain quite the heights I thought it might a year ago. A youthfully reserved bouquet of white flowers, citrus oil and honeycomb precedes a medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping palate that's nicely concentrated, concluding with a chalky finish but without the electric energy one looks for in a top vintage.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is excellent, offering up an already complex bouquet of lemon oil, confit citrus, dried white flowers, honeycomb and fresh croissant. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, powerful and satiny, with lovely depth at the core and an impressive sense of completeness. It promises to be one of the highlights of Samuel Billaud’s 2017 collection.
