Another winner in my book. Like its lesser (VV Sainte Claire) and leaner (Mont de Milieu) siblings, this wine is made from the same cloth. Stony minerality, an almost saline component, lemon/citrus and amazing freshness. Unlike the Sainte Claire and Mont de Milieu, the Montee de Tonnerre is a little richer and rounder and pairs better and more harmoniously with delicate fish (like fresh Cod). Fantastic structure, balance, and finesse. Lovely wine. Recommended.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
