“Show stopping Premier Cru Chablis! • Extremely Limited”

The Most Coveted Premier Cru Chablis

By David Gettenberg
Perched on a hilltop crest immediately beneath the famous Grand Cru Vineyard of Chablis is the Premier Cru vineyard Montee de Tonnerre. Tonnerre is the most prestigious and sought-after of the Chablis Premier Crus. Louis Michel's "Montee de Tonnerre" is often likened to a Grand Cru by those in the industry. Grand Cru quality, indeed! This gorgeous white Burgundy impresses with its vibrant core and racy acidity. Classic notes of pear, green apple, wet stone, white flower, and seashells are the wine's signature. The 2021 has an ethereal presence from beginning to end. It is airy, expressive, and layered with sophistication found only in Chablis Grand Crus. Why We Love Louis Michel's 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre Chablis Location. Location. Location. The terroir of this beauty is nearly identical to the Grand Crus, and no other 1er Cru boasts its topography. Let's put this in perspective- All the Grand Cru Chablis sites line up in a contiguous strip. On the southern tip of this strip is a slight cleft in the ridge followed by a rise - Montee de Tonnerre is that rise! Same exposure. Same terroir. A fraction of Grand Cru prices. While supplies last. Enjoy!
