Community Tasting Notes 12

    September 4, 2020 - A lost Friday afternoon gathering – 06 CDC, 02 Cristal, 08 DP, Aubert, 99 Lambreys and etc. (Clarity - Vienna, Virginia): Medium expression nose displaying concentrated pure white and yellow fruit, lemon curd, candied lemon, a hint of white peach, sea breeze, mountain stream, beeswax and wet stone. Excellent concentration, slightly coiled concentration white and yellow fruit, dense and oily but also showing good precision and focus, medium acidity and strong mineral, and a long cool white fruit driven finish with honey and beeswax at the end. Clearly not the classic definition of Chablis coming from the 12, but a classic Raveneau. This is drinking well at the moment.

    June 24, 2020 - @ Le Soufflot || Toasty and nutty citrus with richness and concentration lacking a bit of crunchy zip and freshness.

    February 19, 2020 - There's a whiff of smoky mineral to the aroma, some mint and ripe orchard fruits. It is full, and voluminous in the mouth, loaded with sappy fruit flavours. It has a relatively low acid feel but the long finish has a hint of citrus rind bitterness that keeps everything fresh. Drinking wonderfully well.

    November 9, 2019 - "Single" Bottle SLDS @ Glass: Orange, oyster shells, ginger and lemon on the nose. In a nice spot on the palate, well balanced with fine control and fruit power that sits in the background. Long and lovely.

    March 9, 2019 - Very good depth here, characteristic of most Raveneau '12s. Not as much cut or potential as the other cuvees in the vintage, but good wine, even now.
