This climat is situated alongside the former Roman road that links the town of Auxerrre with the town of Tonnerre. As extension of the Grand crus, this is the most diverse of the premiere crus with a very complete profile : mineral, floral, oiliness body and rich character.

Winemaker notes

Beautiful white gold hue with greenish tinges. This 1er Cru offers an exceptional aromatic profile with mineral notes and spice. Palate: the perfect balance between strength, freshness, sweet fruity notes and intense floral aromas. A complex, elegant and remarkably harmonious wine.


Burghound 91-93: An exuberantly floral nose freely reveals its aromas of spice, seashore, apple and enough wood influence to mention. The focused and beautifully refined flavors ooze minerality on the almost painfully intense, bone-dry and strikingly long finale. This is very stylish as well as classy. Well worth checking out.


Burghound 91-94♥: More moderate though still easily detectible wood is present on the nose of iodine, mineral reduction, white flowers and a hint of oyster shell. The markedly finer middleweight flavors exude evident minerality that adds a sense of lift to the balanced, nicely dry and impressively long finish that displays the natural class of a fine MdT. Excellent.

Decanter 94: Very pure and crystalline on both nose and palate. Real drive and energy, just the vaguest hint of wood which adds more to texture than flavour. A very fine example. Billaud-Simon has plots within the three sectors of Montée de Tonnerre, with the oldest plots in the Pied d'Aloup climat which reach 87 years old. Olivier Bailly normally only uses tank for this climat but this year has 6% in barrel.
