Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 92 pts. and median of 92 pts. in 10 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by dbp on 4/18/2014 & rated 90 points: France: 38 Wines from Kermit Lynch (E&R Wine Shop, Portland OR): Soft, mild, and slightly funky aromas. Rich and heavy body on the palate, which is smooth, soft, and pretty mild, showing some funky old lemon notes. Overall, quite lean and mild. Lean again on the finish, with decent acidity driving tart notions, but really not too much depth here. (2209 views)
 Tasted by paul195 on 1/18/2013: Unlike the excellent bottle over the holidays, this bottle had lost its wax capsule, was clearly a darker color and alas was over the hill and oxidized (2487 views)
 Tasted by paul195 on 1/1/2013 & rated 92 points: Nice golden color, initially subdued bouquet which opened nicely after 30 minutes revealing hints of lemon and honeysuckle. Nice texture and finish. Good balance, fully mature burg. (2529 views)
 Tasted by KenK on 11/24/2012 & rated 94 points: Great lemon lime aromas, Shows good brightness with mineral extract. Quite dry a fine depth of flavor with beautiful texture. 93 (2938 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 11/23/2012 & rated 93 points: Friday after Thanksgiving (FAT) (Palm Beach Gardens FL): Tasting, brief note. Lemon and lemon peel aromas. Powerful and long with great texture and minerality start-to-finish. Great freshness for its age. (2286 views)
 Tasted by psmith on 11/23/2012 & rated 93 points: Friday after Thanksgiving II (Palm Beach Gardens, FL): Viscous, oily, very light on its feet. Chalk. Citrus notes. Still quite youthful. Musty undercurrent adds a nice complexity. Very nice. (3173 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 6/26/2008 & rated 92 points: Raveneau 1er Cru Chablis Vertical Blindtasted ('83-'96) (Palo Alto, California): Group's #1 (my #4) – 42 pts; 6 1st place votes, 5 2nd place votes, 1 third, 0 last places – Nice canary yellow color; tight cream, earth and grapefruit nose; tasty, tight lemon, sweet lemon, mineral and wheat palate with good acidity and slightly oily texture; medium finish 92+ pts. (1909 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 12/21/2006 & rated 92 points: Raveneau Chablis “Butteaux” 1984-1999 Blindtasting (Tom's House, Palo Alto, CA): Group's #7 (my #4) – 97 pts.; 0, 2, 3, 4 – canary golden color; sherry and sweet lemon butter nose; sweet/tart lemon and cream palate with oak edges, minerals elegant and earthy at the same time, with a waxy texture showing toward the medium-plus finish 92+ pts. (1570 views)
 Tasted by Bunski on 9/15/2005 & rated 90 points: Had this with a nice Wild (White) Alaskan King Salmon. The fruit is fading maybe a touch and the butter is there. No more of the nice steely mineral finish as is more evident in younger Chablis. A very nice drinking wine however that goes very well with food. (1880 views)
 Tasted by mnh on 5/1/1995: Typical chablis features but not earthshaking (317 views)

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates

Chablis

Chablis (Fédération de Défense de l'Appellation Chablis) | Chablis (Burgundy Wines)

2014 Vintage Notes:
"... a hybrid of 2004/2007 and 2010. The stone, citrus and limestone amalgam is exactly what we search for in Chablis as the style harkens to a day in the Cote de Beaune proper (1960's - 1980's) when wine was not meant to be consumed the week it was released, battonage was not used by all and new oak was rarely seen ... the texture is natural and 'of the vintage' not 'of the winemaker' .... Like Sancerre or the Loire in general, 2014 in Chablis is one of those rare years with extract and transparency. It appears to be a vintage for the "neoclassic" ages and those of us intent on cellaring the most terroir-driven (but still powerful) examples of vineyard, site-place and varietal will want to invest (heavily) in the magnetic and electric 2014's." - Jon Rimmerman
