Beautiful white gold hue with green reflections. This premier cru is highly aromatic with mineral notes and spice. The taut palate is softened by its rich and oily texture. It offers the perfect balance between strength, freshness, minerality, fruit and ripeness. An elegant, complex and harmonious wine. Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre is just southeast of the Grand Crus and enjoys the same south/southeast exposure as Les Clos Grand Cru. Close to a Grand Cru in style and geography, these wines have great longevity and are layered and complex. About the Brand: Domaine Billaud-Simon was founded in 1815 after Charles Louis Noël Billaud planted vines on his family’s holdings upon returning home from the Napeolonic Wars. Over time the estate has expanded and is now composed of 42 acres, encompassing some of the most prized Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards in Chablis. Through changes at the estate and technical improvements they are continually striving to improve their quality and uphold the Domaine Billaud-Simon’s style of elegance, balance, and pure Chardonnay. The wines are delicious when young and can also evolve beautifully with age Critical Acclaim: 2018: 93 points Wine Enthusiast “Aromatic notes of Conference pear are vivid on the nose of this wine. The palate adds zestiness, suggesting white citrus pith on the midpalate that channels the fruity abundance and gives tension and texture, scented with lemon freshness. The finish is dry, bright and refreshing, with a lovely smidgeon of that Chablis chalkiness.” Anne Krebiehl, Wine Enthusiast 2014: 94 points Wine Spectator "This is crisp, with apple, plum and lemon flavors, accented by floral and mineral notes. Delicate, finishing with fine harmony and length. 150 cases imported."
