Stellar showing. Perfect bottle that was deep, alive and layered. Wonderful iodine and crab shells gave way to secondary notes of mushroom and broth. Pristine and outclassing younger chablis grand cru at the table. My final bottle. Drink and savor if you have them.
Powerful mineral nose that hangs in the nostrils for many seconds. A little bit of musty funk and vegetation. Showed the age beautifully. Very buttery taste, melts in your mouth with great acidity. Would compare the taste to a cote de beaune white and the nose to a chablis. Incredibly long finish that sings; a magical Chablis experience. 97+

(François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux) Group's #1 (my #3) – 71 pts; 4, 4, 3, 3 – pale canary yellow color; tangy orange, egg and cream nose with a bit of sulfur; tart citrus and bright lemon on the palate with a rich, creamy texture; medium finish (more like a white Burgundy than Chablis)
