A magnum of this is just no where near enough, it is so good. Complex aromatics of oyster shell, fennel, aniseed and citrus. Rich in the mouth but so piercing and possessing a cool rocky heart. It has such depth and clarity and is Grand Cru quality in every sense.
pas pris de notes. Surement mon meilleur raveneau bu jusque là. Je me suis peut être laissé influencer par la réputation du millésimé. Quoi qu'il en soit, je n'ai pas encore gouté ses grands crus mais ça ne tardera pas !
Sydney Burgundy Celebration: Iconic Wineries (Blind): Mineral, spice, stonefruit and some light alcohol warmth on the nose. The palate shows more weight and ripeness than the mineral driven aromas - the balance is decent, but not great, with the density of the fruit really taking centre stage for now. The palate does has good texture and length and once revealed the intensity could be viewed as a classic trait of the winery style, but it didn't quite resonate with me as other bottles of Raveneau have in the past.
10 Vintages of Raveneau's Montee de Tonnerre (Vin, Vino, Wine in Palo Alto, CA): 10 Vintages of Raveneau MdT 02 thru 12 (minus the 06), poured at a VVW sit down tasting. My sixth place wine. This has a more meyer lemon note without any sea born fireworks. Very clean and crisp. The mouthfeel is also much lighter and very crisp and lemony with some drying citrus elements. Kind of a lightweight in the intensity department, this Chablis could have come from a number of producers not named Raveneau, well crafted but it does not have much of a wow factor.
Wet stones, pear, yellow stone fruit , cold cream and flowers on the nose - quite delicate and subtle. Remarkably well balanced on the palate, fresh and saline with pure ripe fruit, steely, cool, slightly creamy. The finish is long and intense. A wonderful wine with good future. 93-95
