Taught, elegant, minerally, and youthful...still at 15yrs old? Classic Chablis! I really like this producer and this wine, just not, the top of market price these sell for. You can drink this well for much less from other producers like Billaud Simon. The 2010 version of Raveneau Butteaux, selling for $150+, is a poor value these days. I paid $60 for the 2000 Raveneau MdT, a few years after release, those we're the good old days :) I've stopped buying Dauvissat too.
Wow this bottle was singing. The nose has that sea salt buttery caramel note that I love from these wines. The palate is just crystalline pure with a mineral backbone. This wine has a nice roundness to it without being heavy at all. A real treat.
Simply delicious. Still an adolescent, but certainly within a very nice drinking window. It appears the one maturing bottle I had a few years back was an anomaly. Beginning to round out and to get that particular flavor profile recognizable only as Raveneau. A treat that is great now, but appears to have plenty of life left.
