    March 16, 2017 - Pale colour with a tinge of gold. This Chablis has a lovely classic nose with pear, grapefruit and apple and touches of lemon, straw and boiled sweets. Palate just a little round for classic Chablis but a beautiful mineral finish with great length. In fine shape and a delicious drink now- the outstanding attribute is the purity.

    March 12, 2017 - Unctuous wine with enticing mouthfeel, gobs of dry extract. Lemon custard, reminiscent of Meursault. Hint of oak on the finish, pretty well integrated.

    I'm a big MdT fan, drink them often, and I usually appreciate them for their precision and elegance. This is another kettle of fish, however, more like Valmur with the muscular finish that lingers for minutes.

    Sweeter and richer after some time to breathe. Pear and honey elements emerge.

    On a big picture note - based on this and several other wines in recent months - I'm starting to think 05 whites have been underrated. There has been much talk of them being flabby, but I'm not experiencing it, not from my "go to" producers in any case.

    March 8, 2017 - A much more forward and fruit expression with riper orange peel and citrus and definitely less minerality and quite youthful.

    January 26, 2017 - Drinking right in the zone. Complex aromatics of orchard fruits, iodine, butter and spice. It is full and layered in the mouth. Acidity is relatively gentle but as with every Raveneau wine there’s real freshness and poise.

    November 7, 2016 - French Chardonnay With and Without Bubbles (1760 Restaurant, San Francisco): Tasted next to the '05 Chapelot. Full yellow. Trademark Raveneau beeswax, honey, and spice. Less obvious Chablis salinity. Great feel and amplitude with lower acidity and minerality. For a moment, it gravitated toward the leaner, stonier profile of the Chapelot and displayed a whiff of citrus, but this tasting left no doubt that this is the broader wine. Grand Cru weight and texture if not precision, but as it has aged, it has proven its mettle and shown that it is not too flabby despite the rich vintage.
