Located on the right bank of the Serein, alongside the Grand Crus, Montée de Tonnerre is certainly the most prestigious and sought-after of the Chablis Premier Crus. The soil is at once deep, fertile and well drained. The well ventilated and south-west facing vines enjoy plenty of sunshine and produce a wine with sun-kissed aromas. This is the ultimate expression of a successful partnership between soil and climate: powerful wines that are both complex and balanced.
And it is sometimes said that Montée de Tonnerre should be the eighth Grand Cru!
