2017 Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

Posted by Ian McFadden

Year after year, Montée de Tonnerre is one of the stars of Raveneau's lineup.

Simply put, Raveneau produces some of the greatest white wines on earth. Although Montée de Tonnerre is a 1er Cru, it has the capacity to rival many a Grand Cru. The wine can possess a level of power and finesse that's reminiscent of Les Clos.

Being able to offer Raveneau has become a luxury. I want to end the year in style with a 2017 Montée de Tonnerre.

I should note that this is a small parcel and I don't think that it will stick around for long.

Raveneau's 2017s are seriously impressive. The wines deliver a near-perfect richness and presence with an intense cut.

Montée de Tonnerre is known not only for its complexity, but also its muscular punch. In 2017, Montée de Tonnerre shows an extraordinary amount of refinement that is married to the wine's driving force. The 2017's breeding and balance make it very clear that this is a great vintage for one of Chablis' top wines.

I'll wrap this up. It's New Year's Eve and Raveneau's Montée de Tonnerre is among the most sought after white Burgundies. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.

"The 2017 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is one of the classiest and most refined wines in this range. Light, gracious and impossibly refined, the Montée de Tonnerre shows why this premier cru is so highly regarded. All the elements are perfectly in place. Silky, pliant and wonderfully expressive, with terrific energy, the Montée de Tonnerre hits all the right notes. In a word: sublime."
