PATRICK PIUZE 2012 MONTEE DE TONNERRE 1ER CHABLIS PREMIER CRU

eROBERT PARKER 91-92 POINTS: "Piuze says that his 2012 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre originates with a single hands-on grower who “is one of those meticulous men who has never, ever produced wine but has grown grapes all his life” (and who also supplies Piuze’s outstanding Vaucrains). There is an impressively overt if somewhat opaque sense of sheer density to this wine, which is loaded with salt- and alkali-tinged lemon, grapefruit, and kelp. Mouthwateringly long and mysteriously marine and mineral, happily, there are 17 barrels of this, and it should fare well in bottle through at least 2020."

BURGHOUND 90-92 POINTS "SWEET SPOT, OUTSTANDING": "This is aromatically similar to the Vaulorent but with just a touch more complexity that carries over to the rich, round and imposing middle weight plus flavors that brim with a palate coating dry extract. And also like the Vaulorent there is a lovely sense of refinement to the saline, balanced and impressively persistent finish. Lovely."
