  • 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.

  • Medium yellow. Underripe pineapple and saline notes. Medium bodied. Very flavorful ripe fruit balanced by decent acidity and brothiness. Far better than the last few bottles I've had of this, and also distinctly less advanced than the 2006 Clos poured for us in Chablis last month. Nonetheless, for drinking over the near term. A nice surprise in terms of the quality.

  • 100%-Merlot themed dinner (The American Club): The 2nd of our 2 whites for the evening. Blinded too. Guesses were all over, & most had this as a CdB 1er-Cru. I had slight oak (nicely done), nuts, honey & some salinity (sea-breeze?) on the nose. On hindsight, this should've been a giveaway for a top Chablis, but I was fixated on Meursault which also tend to have this saline characteristic. This had good intensity & purity on the palate, but somehow lacked complexity unlike the Batards I've had recently which were scintillating. Still, a very good white!

  • Rich and fat. Lacking the mineral and cut of a good Raveneau. Showing very much the vintage character and I'm one who believes 2006 may be underrated for red and white burgundy alike.
