    February 25, 2019 - Tight as a drum on opening and for 3-4 hours. Decanted. Eventually there was honey, some beeswax, coconut, lemon.....

    February 18, 2019 - This took hours to open, but once it did it was spectacular. Decanted for four hours which wasn't enough.

    December 5, 2018 - Popped and poured consumed over a 3 hour lunch. Grapefruit, honey, iodine and lemon on the nose. Lovely texture on the nicely acidic and crisp palate. Expansive yet taut texture, silky and finishes slightly bitter and lifting. Outstanding today but no hurry to drink this soon. An example of why we buy and cellar Raveneau.

    July 20, 2018 - This a perfect example of 1er Cru Chablis with a pale green gold colour and a lovely nose of lemon, lime, barley sugar and hay with touches of pear and stone. The palate has a lovely tightness and grip that balances the classic fruit characters on the entry and provides that zest that makes a great Chablis. Terrific drinking.
