    July 14, 2017 - Right from the uncorking this thing bursts with energy. The nose is spectacular, offering incredibly pure limestone, lemon and lime zest, chalkiness, parsley, mushroom funk, daisies and dandelions, and sea mist. The body is lush but offers great cut with impeccably balanced acid that zigs and zags with nervous energy and verve. This is why you drink Chablis, it makes life come to life. The abundant citrus is all sorts of zest and pithy goodness. The sea is very prevalent as are the bitter greens. It finishes with a really nice, modest sweetness that doesn't overwhelm the nervous acid. An amazing achievement considering the vintage, it's drinking exceptionally well right now.

    May 27, 2017 - This bottle shows a bit more ripeness and less precision than my last bottle. Luckily no signs of premox. There is still some mineral and saline notes to balance the ripe fruit but this bottle leaves me wanting more focus and energy.

    May 11, 2017 - Robe de couleur jaune-vert. Premier nez sur des arômes marins et salins, de même que sur des notes épicées et florales. Après quelques minutes dans le verre, le vin révèle des arômes de fruits blancs du verger, de fruits séchés, d'amandes et de citron. Aucune trace d'oxydation prématurée, ce nez est envoûtant et il s'y dégage une puissance minérale fort plaisante.

    En bouche, le fruit est concentré et mûr (un peu trop de lourdeur) sur des notes de pêche, d'abricot et de citron, de même qu'une touche vanillée en milieu de bouche. La persistance aromatique est assez longue et la finale est délicieuse sur des notes de fruits mûrs.

    Ce Montée de Tonnerre possède certainement un potentiel pour vieillir encore pendant quelques années, mais, cela dit, le côté sur le "fruit mûr" me plait un peu moins. J'aurais aimé un peu plus de fraîcheur et une acidité plus vive. Peut-être est-ce l'effet du millésime? Je ne saurais le dire étant donné que je n'ai dégusté que très peu de Chablis de ce millésime.

    March 31, 2017 - {Purchased on release, #2 of case, PopNPour, 1/2 Vacuvined and tried on night 2). classic minerals and scent, touch of almond-nuts-marzipan I sometimes associate with Meursault and ripe Chablis; in mouth mixture of limestone, flint and round fruit. Good length. Reading prior notes this bottle came across with less citrus and a bit more ripe fruit. Not quite as 'classic' as '08, '10, or '14 fruit. Delicious, very little change with 24 hours, drink or hold.
