"Somewhat surprisingly, this possesses better Chablis typicity than the Montée de Tonnerre with its iodine, oyster shell, lemon rind and ripe pear aromas. There is excellent richness and concentration to the broad-shouldered flavors that exhibit plenty of power and muscle on the lemon and saline-inflected finale. This is a solid if not truly special effort in the context of the appellation and vintage. Note that at least some patience will be required." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 68

"Medium yellow with a faint green tinge. Aromas of white peach, white pepper, herbs and spices. Not more intense than the Montée de Tonnerre but in a fruitier, less saline style, conveying lovely sucrosité and an impression of honeyed ripeness. This very rich wine finishes slightly dusty and unrefined, still a bit youthfully disjointed owing in part to the high level of CO2. Plenty of material here but a bit sweet for my taste."
