    December 31, 2014 - Decanted and poured, this bottle gave a similar showing to previous encounter with this wine. Again, this bottle gives a very good to excellent showing without providing a more compelling impression. This wine is probably at or around it peak. The wine shows no signs of fading but does not leave the impression that it will give a more persuasive showing in the future.

    September 30, 2014 - Raveneau Dinner (Young and Mid-Aged Wines) (Les Nomades - Chicago IL): Tasted blind in flight of younger Raveneau Montée de Tonnerre (2002-2005). Very rich an dripe with lots of power, hasn't yet developed the nuance i always find in mid-aged or mature Thunder Mountain. Slightly less minerality or lemon character than i normally find in Chablis, but I'm confident this emerge as a classic Raveneau in another 5-10+ years.

    September 7, 2014 - Oyster shell and spice on the nose, comes across as more white burgundy than Chablis. There is some oak on the nose and a really seductive aroma. Medium weight feel, heavier than the 04, but with a lovely tension between the rich lemony flavors and the pronounced acid that lingers on the long finish. Group voted 1st out of 5 Raveneau MdT's served single blind during a PWTG tasting.

    August 16, 2014 - From magnum. Good but not great. Very pleasant but I don't think this showed the really dynamic potential that this vineyard and producer are capable of. A sound bottle too. Seemed a bit dilute and lacked zip. Warm vintage? Maybe a lack of acid? Certainly rounder, without richness and a bit short. Not a classic Raveneau.
