"There is a bit more Chablis typicity present on the cool, pure and more elegant nose that offers up aromas of matchstick, mineral reduction, iodine, seashore and green fruit scents that are trimmed in soft wood. There is excellent intensity and plenty of minerality on the more sophisticated if somewhat less powerful flavors that flash an abundance of salinity on the impressively long finale. This is like rolling small pebbles around your mouth and should also age well." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 76

"Montée de Tonnerre suffered this year, so the 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre was produced from very low yields. The resulting wine is consequently unusually rich, fleshy and powerful, revealing aromas and flavors of Meyer lemon, green apple, white flowers and wet stones. Textural and gourmand, with ripe balancing acids, it's hard to know how it will evolve." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #244
