  • This is an absolutely gorgeous wine, and to think I was worried it might be over. Small amount of funk that blew off quickly and reavealed gorgeous fruit with incredible mineral backbone. Incredible nose and equally beautiful palate. Better than the 1995 Foret by the same producer had earlier this year. Now I get Raveneau!

  • Reductive, funky, virile and absolutely spectacular right away. Must have been a real beast when it was younger. Has loads of mineral definition and out of three bottles I bought this is the pick by a long way. We tasted this after a Leflaive 94 Chevalier which was really good but this was better.A very complex bouquet not showing any signs of fading with just a hint of almond like nuttiness letting you know it's not a pup. A wonderful core of minerality like it was carved straight out of the Kimmeridgian gives this soul, creamy texture completes the package making this an almost perfect 1er cru from an unsung vintage. Awesome!

  • A Distinctive Chablis nose. Heavy and buttery yet underlying finesse and minerality and coolness. Just beautiful. Optimum time is now! Outstanding
