Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2018 Oct.)

Here the petrol character displayed by several of the preceding wines is quite prominent on the acacia blossom, citrus rind and white-fleshed fruit scents. I very much like the mouth feel of the sleekly muscular, intense and sappy medium weight flavors that possess plenty of mouth coating dry extract that also buffers the moderately firm acid spine that shapes the well-balanced and impressively long finish. By the normal standards of this wine, the 2016 MdT is much more robust than usual though still impressive.

Vinous - Score: 93 (2018 Aug.)

The 2016 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru has a refined, detailed and mineral driven bouquet with touches of flint and granite percolating through the crisp Granny Smith apple aromas. The palate is very detailed and full of tension, razor-sharp precision here with a supremely well detailed, poised, slightly bitter finish that electrifies the senses. This is superb: one of the best from l'equipe Raveneau this year.
