Christophe et Fils Montee de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru 2021 750ml

Montee de Tonnerre 1er Cru

Chablis 2021

This 2021 Chablis Montée de Tonnèrre is, again, very impressive indeed. I prefer 2021 to 2020 in Chablis as, although the wines are not as dense, the wines have the typical cut and verve for which they are famous. The vineyards famous heavy limestone marl soils give gravitas and amplitude. Intense and impeccably balanced, it shows a crystalline purity, nuance and serious depth. Coming from Chablis finest 1er Cru vineyard (just next to Grand Cru Blanchots) the wine displays superb pedigree and harmony. As approachable as this is now, don't forget to put some away for a few years.
