2020 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

$74.99
2020 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre
The 2020s here are magnificent and account for some of the best wines Fevre has ever produced, with stunning examples throughout the entire range. 2020 is also the first year Fevre has officially converted to organics after 15 years of practicing at the Domaine.
The 2020s have profound complexity, and while they aren't as concentrated as the '19s, they are a bit more typical and dazzling examples of the vintage. We have a bit more of one of the favorites, Montee de Tonnerre Chablis, which is typically the bar-setting wine for many addresses; if you make a good Montee de Tonnerre, it is generally seen as a successful vintage. MDT is located on the right bank of the Serin river just south of the Grand Cru Chablis sites and is considered by many to be the best Premier Cru in Chablis. These are our last bottles of the 2020 MDT from Fevre, and it's one of the top buys of the vintage.

John Gilman 94+ points! "Domaine Fèvre’s 2020 Montée de Tonnerre is another excellent young premier cru. The bouquet is bright, complex and piercing in its precision, jumping from the glass in a mix of apple, pear, tart orange, gorgeously complex, salty minerality, citrus peel and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is racy, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a great girdle of acidity, superb mineral drive and cut and a very long, complex and youthful finish. Great juice in the making."

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 94 points! "The 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is a terrific success, unfurling in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, confit citrus and oatmeal. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and complete, it's fleshy and seamless, with fine depth at the core, racy acids and a long, expansive finish. After several years where this site bore the brunt of hail and frost, Montée de Tonnerre is back with a vengeance."

Burghound 93 points! "A cool, pure and airy nose reflects notes of mineral reduction and citrus zest along with prominent floral and iodine nuances. The sleek, refined and beautifully delineated middleweight flavors possess a bracing salinity on the sneaky long and well-balanced finale. Like several wines in the range, this beauty needs to develop better depth, but it is very stylish and should age effortlessly so more complexity should eventually manifest itself."

Jasper Morris MW (Inside Burgundy) 92-95 points! "Clear light bright lemon, the spices show on the nose, which is right for this vineyard, but there is both power and discretion on hand. Not quite biscuit but there is sort of a wholemeal texture here. Brilliant wine for those who want the more powerful side of Chablis. Still a bit of stone licking at the back."
