  • Pale lemon/straw colour.
    Light fragrance of white flowers and lemon zest. Not intense.
    Light-Med intensity, decent acidity with flavours of soft peach, lemon curd and a hint of honeysuckle, lacks a bit of zip. Finish falls away quickly, some residual oak spice but little real resonance. Frankly a bit disappointing but maybe not unexpected for the vintage.

  • Medium yellow. Three phases. First a rich, tropical entry with fat pineapple and ripe citrus fruit. Then, transiently, a leaner, more saline aspect with florality. Finally, somewhat clunky wood rules. I've never had a great experience with this wine. If I were to describe it in an equation of sorts, I would say that it reflects Raveneau > vintage >> Chablis style and character.

  • Quite typical Chablis and Raveneau, but has a slight dullness of acidity especially on the finish that I think comes from the vintage, quite fragrant, flint and shell, a hint of brown butter, young but not totally fresh.

  • Unique once again in its '06-ness, more a round classically chardonnay vs. the minerally seashell and truffle Raveneau usually is. Still a lot of cinnamon, pear, gunsmoke and white floral notes. A bit softer with some grapefruit and spice.

  • Amazing. Tart and structured like a great Chablis with a little wood/hazelnut to round it out. Nose of the sea, lime, nut, cheese, and light tarragon. Sharp and tart palate of seashells, lime/lemon, flint, herbs, hazelnut, unripe pear skin, and sweet tarts. Probably the best pairing with dungeness I've ever had. Did not budge the 4-5 hours opened. Long life ahead. Wish I could afford more Raveneau!!!
