2018 Chablis, 1er Cru, Montee de Tonnerre, Domaine William Fevre (6 x Bottle)

France Burgundy Chablis

The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre opens in the glass with notes of white flowers, crisp orchard fruit, orange rind, oyster shell and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with good cut and tension and a pure, nicely delineated finish. It marks a return to form for this premier cru, which had been hit by hail and frost for the last handful of successive vintages but was finally spared in 2018.

Vinous

The 2018 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is austere and recalcitrant on the nose, missing the volume and presence of the Montmains. The palate is balanced but relatively simple compared to William Fevre’s other Premier Crus, just missing the same delineation and steeliness on the finish.
