"Moderate but not invasive oak frames the elegant, airy and quite pretty aromas of white flowers, various citrus and oyster shell wisps. There is excellent intensity to the overtly mineral-driven middle weight flavors that flash very good cut on the sneaky long, lemony and solidly dry and firm finale. This lovely effort is a relatively classic MdT and should age accordingly." -Allen Meadow

"The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is excellent, unwinding in the glass with scents of citrus zest, white flowers, wet stones, crushed chalk and iodine. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's intense and tightly wound, with a racy spine of acidity and chalky grip. Concluding with a long, penetrating finish, this is another wine from Billaud that will merit and reward some patience. Having parted ways with Domaine Billaud Simon, Samuel Billaud established his own state-of-the-art winery in central Chablis several years ago, and he has rapidly emerged as one of the town's best half-dozen producers. Working with four hectares of organically farmed estate vineyards, supplemented by purchased grapes, manual harvesting of ripe but bright fruit is the rule here, followed by fermentation at 16 to 20 degrees Celsius in tank and inconspicuous wood, and maturation for 15 to 18 months on the lees for the premiers crus and grand cru bottlings. The 2019 vintage has turned out brilliantly at this address, and everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended." -Robert Parker

"Wholly owned by leading producer Samuel Billaud, this is a fine expression of the benchmark Montée de Tonnerre Premier Cru. Elegant yet relatively forward, this shows a great combination of purity, depth and classic terroir stony notes. 20% oak adds to the complexity on the palate."
