The expressive and ripe nose displays various floral nuances, citrus, stone, oyster shell and ocean breeze scents that are trimmed in just a hint of wood. There is really beautiful detail to the stony, sappy and sleekly muscular middle weight flavors that display a lovely sense of harmony and vibrancy on the moderately dry and impressively persistent finish. Tasted several times over the last few years and while this most recent bottle was not quite at its peak, it’s not so far away that it couldn’t be enjoyed now.

The 2011 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre is all about grace. A gentle hint of spice leads to dried pears, crushed flowers, red berries and licorice. Constantly changing in the glass, the 2011 is a marvel to behold. Suggestions of smoke, graphite and licorice add layers of nuance in a magical wine loaded with class and personality. Best of all, the 2011 is relatively approachable by Raveneau standards, which means reader won’t have to wait long at all to experience the magic of one of the great sites in Chablis.
