Winery Notes:

Its aromatic profile, fine and complete, tends to minerality and white fruits. Also to be found are hints of white flowers, anise and menthol, brioche and sweet spices. On the palate, its lengthy vivacity is prolonged by its saline aspect. Never aggressive, it expresses itself through oyster shell as well as with notes of flint. After 5 to 7 years, its aromatic persistence is enhanced, thereby offering all its power, still balanced by straight-line minerality. It is after 15 years that it acquires incomparable complexity. It is the great lord of the Premier Crus. It will be perfect with grilled lobster.

Fermented 30% in oak. This is more classic and minerally and offers a blend of lemons and yellow nectarines with a very flinty spark on the nose, too. The white peaches here are stunning, so deliciously ripe, sweet yet fresh in the mouth. Good weight and concentration in this vintage. Smooth resolve at the finish. Drink on release or hold.

The 2018 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is powerful, ample and rich, all of which give it a decidedly exotic flair. Lemon confit, marzipan, white flowers and apricot all flesh out in the glass. Droin's Montée de Tonnerre is usually a more reserved, finely cut Chablis, but the 2018 leans decidedly towards opulence. Although quite beautiful and expressive, in the early going this is one of the most overt 2018 Montée de Tonnerre wines I tasted.
