Review:
The grapes come from two, sources in the triangle, which makes up the core of Montée de Tonnerre. Racked and assembled yesterday. We are in yellow fruit territory, exuberant, but really successful, with finesse despite the weight. This Montée de Tonnerre delivers impressive length, a limestone backbone, while the wood is tamed by the quality of the fruit.
