Vineyard notes: "Terroir: Kimmeridgian. Right bank, lots of marl oyster fossils, fairly sticky, shallow soil with plenty of limestone pebbles. Moderate but steady slope. Sunny and warm south-west exposure."

Winemaking

No added yeast, long fermentation using indigenous yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Long moderately cold stabilisation. Fining using bentonite if necessary. The wine is gently filtered once before bottling.
Ageing
Matured for 12 to 16 months. In stainless steel tanks, with the least possible handling.

 

Located on the right bank of the Serein, the Grand Cru side, Montée de Tonnerre is certainly the most prestigious and sought-after of the Chablis Premier Crus. Louis Michel & Fils produces grapes on an entire slope in this location, creating powerful wines that are both complex and balanced.

Pale lemon yellow. Power once again is evident from the outset. But strict enough and with admirable tension at the back, the marine minerals doing their job. A wealth of flavour here and with real grip. This keeps building in the aftertaste. Excellent! Drink from 2026-2034
94 points. Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Louis Michel Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre comes from the most prestigious of all the Chablis premiers crus. The vineyard is located on the right bank of the river Serein, as with the grands crus. The domaine grows fruit on a total of four hectares which were planted in 1974. The soil is Kimmeridgian from the right bank; it’s sticky and features marl with marine fossils, rich in limestone pebbles. Vines with an average age of more than 40 years.
