Celebrating Doug's Birthday...; 11/8/2015-11/9/2015: Color: light golden yellow Smell: sea shells, citrus, chalk, and light floral notes Taste: lemon, green apple, lime, with a hint of quince Overall: This is tight as a drum right now. It's absolutely lovely...but will show much more with time and patience in the cellar. Light-medium body, high acidity, and vibrant fruit. Outstanding!!
Light yellow. Fairly austere nose of mineral and citrus betrays an electric mouth of orchard fruit, honey, and mouth-watering acidity. Less Raveneau in style than other vintages, this is nonetheless a beautiful Chablis from one of my favorite crus, Montée de Tonnerre. Drink now through 2020.
This is a massive wine but everything is held together by a jolt of electric acidity. There are ripe orchard fruits, smoky minerals, iodine and preserved lemon notes. It is so rich, pulpy and textured but not heavy. Flavours permeate every crevice in the mouth and the finish is so dense and chalky. Brilliant stuff.
