  • Stunning fruit and clarity. Delicate yet powerful. Great, with a long life ahead of it

  • 'Nothing but Chardonnay' dinner with Peter Rosback: Decanted 2-3 hours before serving. A clear, pure colour. A fairly austere mineral nose with citrus and yellow orchard fruit nuances. But much richer on palate than you would expect from the nose. As with the Dauvissat, the wine had real concentration and power. I thought that the acids were bright and sparkling but others thought that they finished a little bitterly. Some also saw the Raveneau’s upfront power but thought that the wine fell away on the back palate. As with the Dauvissat, I thought that this wine was very closed and a little raw, but had the matière to carry it through. Again, in time I'd expect a better score. 2/3.

  • 10 Vintages of Raveneau's Montee de Tonnerre (Vin, Vino, Wine in Palo Alto, CA): 10 vintages of Raveneau's MdT, poured at VVW. (02-12 excluding the 06)
    This was just eclipsed by the fantastic 2002 for wine of the night, but give it a few more years and I'm guessing it would come out on top. The nose is deeper, more serious and absolutely on point with the spicy, lemony Raveneau nose coupled with some reticent maritime breeze, sea brine elements. The palate has an almost painful acidic intensity, to the point that you fear with extended swishing in your mouth you are going to be removing your tooth enamel. This has a gripping and intense palate and a long lingering finish that is a step above the other wines. It is such a unique and glorious wine. (Yes I liked this a lot).

  • Relative déception, le vin m'a semblé austère. Il m'en reste deux autres, je donnerai une note après avoir bu la prochaine dans 2 ans

  • Un superbe vin qui s'est ouvert sur deux heures, vraiment renfrogné au départ. Ce n'est qu'après aération qu'on sent vraiment cet équilibre typique de Raveneau alliant richesse et tension minérale. Un vin d'une profondeur et d'une longueur qui feraient la barbe à plusieurs grands crus. Il demeure très tendu et pas tout à fait en place avec un côté amer qui devrait se dissiper, attendons de voir ce que ça donne dans quelques années mais il m'est apparu plus ouvert que les deux fois précédentes.
