"I very much like the focused power... " -2020 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

Posted by Ian McFadden

Today, I'm very happy to offer a modest parcel of Raveneau's 2020 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre.

At their best, the 2020s combine power and richness with snap, tension, and Chablisien minerality. Raveneau has clearly produced some of the top wines of the vintage.

There is no doubt about it: while the Montée de Tonnerre is technically a 1er Cru vineyard, the wine has a density and size to it that humbles most of the Grand Crus. 

The 2020 Montée de Tonnerre has incredible precision and clarity, along with a chewy, silky, and sappy concentration. It offers up a seriously elegant rush of stone, sea salt, citrus fruit, and flowers.

I encourage you to get your orders in early. Quantities are very limited and will likely sell out quickly.

To order, email offers@crushwineco.com or call the store at (212) 980-9463.
