    July 10, 2020 - A lost Friday afternoon gathering – COVID safety measures - Mostly Blind (Reston, Va): Expressive nose displaying rich white and yellow fruit, a hint of oak, honey, white flowers and mineral. Excellent concentration, packed concentrated white and yellow fruit, dense, generous and rich, medium acidity, medium mineral and a medium long rich yellow fruit driven finish. I am thinking a 1er crus Meursault as it is fat and there is a hint of oak. Still needs time.

    March 8, 2020 - Souper au Fil du Zinc (Chablis): Nez de lime, de menthe, avec un peu de conifère. Puissant et droit, salin mais un peu chaleureux en finale. À l’aération, il est très citronné et s’ouvre davantage, mais c’est un coureur de fonds. On préfère le Butteaux à ce stade, 92-93++

    June 9, 2019 - 60-års dag og blinsmaking: Blind. Svakt smør, blanding av smør og nøtter i munnen, middels kropp, fin intensitet. Mange var nok på Chablis, men overraskende tilgjengelig for en så ung Rav, så det var ikke lett å ta produsenten.

    January 28, 2019 - Slow oxed for 2 hours before serving. Honey, pear, citrus and chalk on the nose. Palate was ripe but also balanced with medium acidity for its youth. Lots of underlying substance like exotic fruit, minerals and flint . Grand cru density but just missing that laser sharp acidity. An early drinking vintage but delicious nevertheless. A ripe vintage suits Raveneau’s style very well.
