IWC 94
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, August 2010
Pale yellow-green color. Knockout high-pitched nose combines white flowers crushed stone citrus peel gingery spices and a saline oyster shell nuance. Quite reserved today but impeccably pure displaying outstanding breadth... Pale yellow-green color. Knockout high-pitched nose combines white flowers crushed stone citrus peel gingery spices and a saline oyster shell nuance. Quite reserved today but impeccably pure displaying outstanding breadth and richness without any impression of weight. Wonderfully vigorous wine that saturates the entire mouth with tactile minerality and excites the taste buds. A great example of this superb premier cru.

A discreet touch of wood sets pure elegant and airy floral and spice aromas that are in perfect keeping with the racy energetic and classy medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent depth as well as superb length...

From Fevre sites that had to recover from harsh hailing in 2007 their 2008 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre delivers salty herbed chicken stock aromas and flavors such as only these Kimmeridgian soils seem capable of engendering in vinous form mingled with tart yet luscious fresh lime and red currant. The higher southeast-facing Pied d'Aloue contributes finesse opines Didier Seguier while the two-thirds share from southwesterly exposed Chapelot just below supplies depth of mineral character. The combination of citrus and berry generosity with striking salinity and carnal depth as well as a vibratory sense of finishing energy epitomize the outstanding potential of its vintage. Expect this to be worth following for the better part of a decade if not longer. -David Schildknecht

Oak spice lends clove and nutmeg tones to this rich almost viscous white. Underneath are notes of seashore green apple and lemon. Attractive overall but needs a little time. Best from 2012 through 2020. 80 cases imported. -BS
