    September 30, 2019 - After a little air and coming up a few degrees in temp of really opened up. Limited notes as quickly drank with friends. Grilled mushroom, lemon pie, white blossoms. Medium body & acidity green apple, lemon zest, key lime pie, almond biscotti. Could cellar a few more years.

    September 5, 2019 - First bottle of a mixed case of Raveneau 04s bought on release. Brought, along with a 2004 Leflaive Batard, to drink with friends Thursday night at the Acker Auction held at Le Bernardin Prive.

    Light yellow color, tight clean bright nose, the initial palate showed crisp fruit, citrus notes with hints of sea salt. Texture and acidity provide an energetic frame which serve the wine well. A delicious bottle of wine. Given the embarrassment of riches at these events I moved on to taste other goodies and revisited this a few hours later and this bottle was hitting at a grand cru level.

    As was true with a 2004 Rav Foret at a friends 40th dinner a few weeks ago, this bottle of Butteaux was youthful and still quite primary and drinking 10 years younger, wow I haven’t said that about a white burgundy since roughly 2004 and we said the same this about 1989s which were 15 years old.

    Sadly the 04 Batard which should have been a baby at 15 years old started out well but after 45 mins showed oxidative notes which blemished a wine which used to be, in vintages prior to 1996, a consistent top performer.

    Glad I brought the Butteaux

    August 15, 2019 - Judging from my previous notes on this wine, it just keeps improving. Mushroomy yet fresh, buttery yet vibrant. Quite fat on the palate and flinty, which sent some people who were tasting this blind to Meursailt. One of the best white Burgs in recent memory.

    June 9, 2019 - More advanced than I'd have expected. This bottle (with a chipped cap exposing most of the cork) was fully mature, and quite wonderful. Toasted oats, honey and lemon. Good balance but I could have used more prominent acidity. A little lack of freshness kept this score down. Will try another bottle soon.

    (Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Butteaux") Concentrated and waaaay young. But just so great tasting Raveneau again. Been too long.
