B-21 Top Recommendation

Australian-born winemaker Marc Cameron, and estate-owner, François Servin – one of the more flamboyant winegrowers in Chablis – is on a qualitative hot streak; four consecutive vintages of the best juice I've tasted here. With parcels of the oldest vines comprising most of their holdings, Wine Advocate in particular insists, "They deserve a berth in your cellar alongside those prized Raveneaus and Dauvissats." Tasting the line-up, I get it. You will, too. Acidities are perfectly balanced with the fruit, but more importantly, the "Chablis" spirit is here – in buckets. What I seek, foremost – my beloved Kimmeridgian vein of salinity – weaves its way throughout François Servin's selections.

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.

93+ points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jan 2020)

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.

91 points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Jul 2020)
