This isn't quite as aromatically elegant but there is even better layering to the more obviously citrus-influenced nose of pear, wet stone, iodine and ocean breeze scents. The sleek, intense and utterly delicious medium weight flavors possess more mid-palate density and a bit more power as well that arises on the beautifully persistent finish. This isn't as classy as the Montée de Tonnerre but there is even better punch thanks to the excellent underlying tension. A qualitative choice though note that stylistically, these are very different wines.
