    August 12, 2016 - Nick's four wine pairs: The golden colour of the wine hinted at the age. On the bouquet, burnt toffee, smoke, green apples, wet marble, lemons and as touch of Époisses. Chalk on the palate, dry and tactile. Appropriately oxed, just a small hint of maderisation. Beeswax, orange zest, lemons, limes and grape skins with slatey minerality and chalk in the background. Excellent piercing acidity, but still the fruit volume to match. Great length. Two days later, from the fridge, it was steelier, dryer seeming and more mineral, with no hint of falling over. There's easily another 5-10 years here. Grand Cru quality Chablis.

    April 27, 2016 - Fet og rik. Honning, sitrus, hvite blomster og med et lett urtepreg i retning myntedrops. Gul frukt i retning aprikos og kandisert appelsinskall. Fyldig i munn. Fin lengde. Litt i overkant utviklet.

    September 19, 2015 - Pure Raveneau awesomeness. Dense and powerful, but not overbearing. Some time in the decanter really opens this up as always. Exactly how it should be.

    August 28, 2015 - Three Nights In San Juan; 8/27/2015-8/29/2015: Drank beautifully over a leisurely lunch. Even more expressive than previous bottles.

    January 21, 2015 - Couleur dorée plutôt pale sans éclat. Nez plutôt discret sur les fruits jaunes, le champignon, la laine mouillée et une petite touche minérale. Bouche avec un touché acide qui manque de chair, de fruit et d'éclat; semble ne rester que la structure acide du chardonnay. Sur le déclin ou bouteille imparfaite.

    (Raveneau Monte de Tonnere) This also seemed pretty approachable. Aromas of minerals, key lime pie, butterscotch but the overwhelming aromas was of mineral. Really fat on the palate with great precision. Silky yet acidic at the same time if that makes any sense.
