Blind Chablis Tasting (River Forest, IL): Tasted blind in Chablis flight. Ever-so-slightly reductive aromas, making me think this Raveneau. Ripe fruit still clear on nose, more clear on palate with moderate weight but almost perfect balance. My 3rd favorite wine tonight, the group's #2.
PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs -translucent pale light gold grey green -tidal pool saline -med acidity, med/med- weight mid-palate with a bit less intensity than usual for this wine, elegant minerality with lemon citrus, stony finish -very good though not stellar at this point in its evolution, suspect it will pick up some complexity over the next 5 years
Most better than the various premox bottles I had from Raveneau over the last couple of years. With this producer, I would rather err on the side of caution. Great Chablis character even if it clearly hasn't fully evolved yet. Impeccable balance, great texture and beautiful finish. Will wait 2 years for other bottles
Première expérience avec Butteaux ici (Finalement Montée Tonerre que j'ai bu à deux reprises). Beaucoup de citron,citron confits et un peu de souffre au nez.Légèrement herbacé (estragon). Minérale à souhait avec une belle aciditée et une belle longueur.Manque un peu de consistance mais très bien quand même. 91 pts
