Domaine Servin Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Chablis|
The 2018 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru shows more structure and power than the other premiers crus in this range. Phenolic and savory, the 2018 is endowed with a real sense of energy and richness. The 2018 was bottled just two weeks before this tasting and is showing some element of angularity. Even so, it is impressive.
Bursting with aromas of peach, orange oil and white flowers, the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and charming, with a satiny attack and a tightly wound mid-palate, concluding with a chalky finish.
Subtle greengage and Mirabelle notes entice on the nose of this wine. The palate presents them in a juicy fashion that puts rounded fruit in the foreground. This is countered by a slightly pithy, pleasant texture that suggests ripe citrus to achieve a harmonious, fresh balance.
