Burgundy Dinner with a Friend (Spiaggia - Chicago IL): Green apple and lemon aromas with floral hints. Ripe and intense apple and pear flavors with great oystershell and mineral character throughout. Very long and energetic with some lemon and lemon peel at the finish. This is an '06 with lots of life going forward.
7 Vintages of Raveneau Valmur 2000 to 2007 (ex 2003) (Vin, Vino, Wine): Powdery lemon, sea shore, iodine and some tropical sweetness on the nose. Very broad and somewhat rich flavors on the palate, flatter less energy and without the sweet/sour tension of the top years, but really showed very well. Ranked 5th our of 7, but showed surprising well for a very ripe year.
Fantastic wine. Classic Chablis that brings a smile to your face. Surprisingly bright and lovely for a 2006, but little surprise given that it's Raveneau. Stony minerality, citrus and flowers expressed in a powerful yet rather delicate package. Drinking exceedingly well today and full of life.
