Chablis Premier Cru 'Montee de Tonnerre', Patrick Piuze, France 2014

“This is a gorgeous Chablis that should age with style.” - The Wine Advocate

There is no value to be had once a cat is out of its bag. As far as Chablis goes, Dauvissat and Raveneau are both cats that have long been out of their respective bags, and they are priced accordingly. Patrick Piuze, however, is still in his bag, but not for much longer. We tasted a horizontal of his 2014s (a sensational vintage for Chablis) and were bowled over by the quality. We know that a few canny insiders have already scruffed him and are about to pull the bag away, but it hasn’t happened quite yet, so this wine, even at £56.00, represents great value. It’s Premier Cru that was on a par with his Grand Crus (‘Les Clos’, ‘Valmur’ and ‘Bourgros’), which tip over £100 a bottle now, combining richness of fruit concentration with spine-tingling acidity, nacreous minerality and a tireless finish that suggests it will still be drinking beautifully 15 years after vintage. Bag one now. 12.5% alc. Drink now-2029.

Press review:

The Wine Advocate: “The 2014 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre has a stony, cold flint, austere bouquet, the most introspective of Piuze's wines this year. The palate is clean and fresh, fatter than the nose suggests with white peach, white pepper and plenty of spice on the finish that shows a lot of dry extract. This is a gorgeous Chablis that should age with style.” 92 points
