HDH Auction - lovely bottle of Chablis. This has a quiet restrained style but still commands your attention but without shouting at you.

2009 François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

Chardonnay more

6/29/2015 - galenico wrote: 89 points

Già nelle grandi annate i vini di Raveneau parlano poco del terroir di Chablis, in questo 2009 il timbro è ancora più rilassato e morbido. Vino ben fatto, come sempre, ma non ha nessun carattere che spicca, se non la persistenza del finale. Resti sempre lì in attesa di qualcosa che non succede. Manca della magia dei grandi Chardonnay. La 2009 è un' annata in cui non consiglio di scegliere questo produttore. Se l' avessi assaggiato alla cieca forse il punteggio avrebbe potuto essere leggermente superiore, ma rimane un esempio piuttosto grossolano e impacciato: manca della spinta acida e minerale che rende unici i grandi Chablis.
Pessimo rapporto godimento/prezzo.

Steely, austere, long, with just a hint of richness. A glimpse of future excellence but realistically too young. The 1990 score is for now. No doubt it will rise.

WOW
Deep golden color. Nose of honey.
Butterscotch, marzipan, citrus all layered wonderfully. Minerality and acidity in perfect harmony with the flavor profile resulting in an extraordinary wine. The finish kept going on and on. We were lucky she enough to have two bottles and they both were wonderful.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): I like where this wine is right now. Big and powerful, it has the weight of Valmur and the wonderful salty/lemony/floral notes of great Chablis. If it doesn't prematurely oxidize, this will be a masterpiece once some of the secondary notes develop.

HDH auction tasting at Tru (Chicago, IL): Almost colourless. There's a forward white fruit note on the nose, but this doesn't seem to have the same citrus qualities I associate with Raveneau. The palate does have a lovely salinity, with clarity and precision, but this shows a quiet calm contemplative quality rather than any mineral or acid explosion. But hell, there's no debate that this is a great bottle of Chablis.

Chablis: Superb elegance, fresh and youthful but already with the right amount of complexity, not a trace of the oak, so good is the winemaking. A WOTN for me.

Surely this will improve but it's so delicious now one cannot be blamed for impatience. Long, intense finish that has monumental power while lightly gliding across the palate.

Drank at R Vinbar in Copenhagen. Deep Raveneau and Dauvissat verticals - lovely burgundy focussed list.

No detailed notes on this, but much really much lusher and fruit driven than expected. Nb - my first Raveneau. Lacking the verve I was hoping for and perhaps also the spine for the long term, but still delicious with long saline finish. Apparently you should take these on in their infancy then leave alone to go through the difficult years before they blossom again.

Rockstars of Burgundy: Toast, orange, spice, floral aromas. Superb depth, really full flavoured but not obvious - really good texture behind it. Long and powerful but also has great class. Stylish and superb, with a huge amount of potential.

Rockstars of Burgundy: Swirling, beautiful aromatics - perfumed florals, grapefruit, graphite, orange and spice. Very clean on the palate, has great purity and a mineral core - full but the acidity is excellent. More depth than the 1er wines from the previous flight.

Rockstars of Burgundy: Pineapple, musk, herb and mandarin. Good texture, persists well - has good character to it - less intensity than the other Grand crus next to it but I rather liked it.

Rockstars of Burgundy: Popcorn, floral, some dill/herbs and a little oak. Balances the herbal and ripe fruit quite well. Length is nice, more roundness than the other premier crus it was next to. This was nice, though a little unusual.

Rockstars of Burgundy: Grapefruit, spice, pear - quite open on the nose with some richness to it. Clean and bright palate, shows the relationship to the butteaux with that mineral element but with a little more fruit power. Kept coming back to this wine over the others.

Opened and poured, this bottle gave a similar showing to the last experience with this wine. The bouquet and palate provide expression and balance with overall youthful impression. The wine benefited from airing and should improve with an additional year or two of bottle age.

Rich, focused nose of citrus blossom honey. More blossom honey in the mouth, with pineapple and lemon on the finish. The precision of honey is impressive. Low acidity. Not sure what is up with these bottlings as tasting notes are all over the place. Lacking structure, I don't see this getting much better: Drink now.

Bright yellow in colour with a darker, slightly golden rim. The impressive nose is per perfumed with a strong floral character, notes of red apples, yellow stone fruit, smoke and wet stones - intriguing and complex. On the palate well balanced, quite soft at first with good acidity. Slowly intensifying, showing mineral and lime fruit notes and great vibrancy. The finish is superb and very persistent. Elegant and very fine. Drink or hold. 92-94

Wine dinner at Blacksalt - Prévost, Krug, Pichler, Raveneau, Fevre, Grivot, LLC, Yquem & etc. (Blacksalt, Washington DC): Incredibly youthful nose displaying cool shy white fruits, pear, lemon, strong presence of saline and wet limestone, cool mountain stream and fresh white pepper. Medium concentration, cool white fruit driven palate impression, strong presence of mineral, good acidity and seamless clean sweet finish. Not the most concentration but very precise and fresh. Really enjoyable in very lean and mineral way but also displaying saline, mineral and oil which makes all Raveneau very special.

Taught, elegant, minerally, and youthful...still at 15yrs old? Classic Chablis! I really like this producer and this wine, just not, the top of market price these sell for. You can drink this well for much less from other producers like Billaud Simon. The 2010 version of Raveneau Butteaux, selling for $150+, is a poor value these days. I paid $60 for the 2000 Raveneau MdT, a few years after release, those we're the good old days :) I've stopped buying Dauvissat too.

6/9/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Full yellow. Lime and white flowers. Beautifully silky feel upon entry, incredible interplay of ripe green citrus, a bit of pear, and mouth scrunching acidity. Chalk and salinity to finish. This struck me as far more structured and classic than when I last had this in 2013. No ripe, friendly Vaillons this. Terrific Premier Cru that is in its drinking window but should hold for another 5 years.
