2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre, Samuel Billaud

“The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre comes from two parcels in the lieux-dits of Haut Chapelot and Montée de Tonnerre itself (in a part known as the "triangle" due to its shape). It has a very refined bouquet with scents of white peach and a hint of nectarine developing alongside chalky aromas. The palate is very crisp on the entry with notes of Granny Smith apple, that white peach again and a touch of spice that lends tension and energy towards the finish; there is a dab of lemongrass that seems to fizz on the tip of the tongue after the wine has departed. This is a one of Samuel Billaud's most impressive releases in 2015.”
