John Gilman 93 points! "With the very low yields here in Montée de Tonnerre, I was expecting this wine to be a bit dense and further behind in its development than the other premier crus in the cellar, but this was not the case and the 2017 version here at Domaine Michel is going to be very, very good. The bouquet is pure and classic, offering up scents of apple, lime, chalky minerality, dried flowers and a topnote of orange peel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, poised and racy in personality, with a fine core of fruit, excellent backend mineral drive and a long, nascently complex and zesty finish. This is very, very good this year."
Burghound (Allen Meadows) 91-93 points! "An overtly floral nose flashes notes of iodine, freshly sliced white-fleshed fruit and an interesting hint of tangerine peel. There is both excellent volume and vibrancy to the solidly powerful and focused flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the beautifully long, complex and well-balanced finale. Classy juice that is well-worth your attention."
