Chablis Montée de Tonnerre, Domaine William Fèvre 2018
Just assembled and has not fallen clear yet. The nose is rather hidden as well as a result. Fat and concentrated on the palate with an attractive weight behind, opens out to a pleasing ripeness. Less acidity but that’s a little bit the style of the wine. Just a little bit of a reductive twang at the back. Tasted: May 2019
|Score: 90/93||Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy, May 2019|
The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre opens in the glass with notes of white flowers, crisp orchard fruit, orange rind, oyster shell and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with good cut and tension and a pure, nicely delineated finish. It marks a return to form for this premier cru, which had been hit by hail and frost for the last handful of successive vintages but was finally spared in 2018.
