Decanted and poured, this wine show little development with a somewhat stern personality over the course of its consumption. This bottle contrasted with the recently tasted and more generous 2011 Raveneau "Vaillons". This bottle shows similar components and characteristics to a bottle tasted on release; however, on this occasion the wine is more reserved and lean. At this stage the wine gives detailed aromatics and an austere palate that gives a medium length finish and racy, crisp acidity. Based on this showing, the wine will benefit from a at least a couple years of additional bottle age.
Giallo paglierino carico, naso chiuso a riccio, praticamente buccia di limone e cenni minerali gessosi, bocca goduriosa, acidità spiccata ma mai fuori riga, sapido, agrumato, leggermente ostricoso con una buona persistenza e densità. Piaciuto, da aspettare qualche anno.
Tasted over 2 hrs. Somewhat reticent, pure and elegant Chablis character, but lacking a bit of intensity at the moment with med acidity and average concentration. Expect it to pick up complexity over the next several years.
