TASTING NOTES

94 points Wine Enthusiast. Tasting date: December, 2020

"Subtle aromatics combine pear peel, creamy candlewax and green citrus into an alluring, fresh nose on this wine. The palate comes in with rounded ripeness. It redoubles that sense of creaminess that rests on a yeasty, billowing texture that is backed by bright lemon. The interplay between freshness, ripeness and texture creates harmony. Lovely chalkiness appears on the finish."

92-94 points Vinous. Tasting date: January, 2020

"Very tight, but it was also racked just prior to this tasting, and Montée de Tonnerre is naturally a site that yields intensely mineral wines. Bright citrus, mint, chalk and white pepper open up gradually in a brisk, focused wine that needs time to show at its best. The Fèvre Montée de Tonnerre is a blend of three climats: Pied d'Aloup (east-facing), Chapelot (south-facing) and Côte de Bréchain (west-facing, vines planted in 1936)."

93 points John Gilman. Tasting date: January, 2020

"Simply outstanding. The bouquet is flat out gorgeous already, wafting from the glass in a blend of lime, apple, pear, citrus zest, a complex base of chalky minerality, a touch of beeswax and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep,. full-bodied, complex and rock solid at the core, with great backend mineral drive, fine focus and grip and a long, lifted and perfectly balanced finish."

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. Tasting date: June, 2020

"Offers up aromas of lemon oil, freshly baked bread, crisp green apple, white flowers, wet stones and oyster jus. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's tensile and dynamic, with tangy acids, fine depth at the core and a long, sapid finish."

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound. October, 2020

"An elegant, pure and relatively airy nose combines plenty of Chablis typicity with notes of white orchard fruit, citrus, algae and iodine wisps. There is very good minerality and delineation to the lacy and refined yet punchy flavors that deliver sneaky good length where the intensity really builds from the mid-palate to the driving finish. This needs to develop better complexity but should be able to do so with a few years of bottle age."

91 points James Suckling. Tasting date: August, 2020

"A tight, minerally and fruity white with medium body and a creamy, almond-milk aftertaste." 

91 points Wine Spectator. Tasting date: December, 2020

"Apple, grapefruit and seashore notes combine in this racy Chablis. There's an herbal accent too as this remains intense, long and focused on the finish."
