Community Tasting Note

  • dcwino wrote: 96 points

    June 22, 2017 - Winos' excellent adventure in France; 6/22/2017-6/27/2017 (All over France): Pop and pour, coiled nose displaying ripe citrus, lemon curd, honey, white flowers, saline, strong mineral a la wet stone and a hint of honey. Excellent concentration, oily, dense and coiled. Bright acidity and a long mineral and honey driven finish. With air, it opens up, displaying generous citrus fruit and honey. The ripeness is in line with the other 09 Raveneaus; however, the wine displays a greater precision and focus. Needs minimum ten more years to reach maturity.

    Loved your note: for us heaven on earth-lunch at Taillevent, dinner at Grand Vefour. Hope we all get to do that again.
