2011 - Domaine Francois Raveneau, Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre
- 89 NM
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru is very austere and reticent on the nose at first, much like their Chapelot, but it opens nicely with subtle marine influences combining with the tertiary, hay bale scents. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, touches of lemon and almond, a subtle use of oak just rounding out the finish but this is very harmonious and refined, a real crowd-pleaser.
