    September 3, 2017 - A tasting @ Xavier: Displaying palate-cleansing freshness with lemony fruit flavors and creaminess, full bodied with low acid and silky minerals. This was soft and delicious but not a wine and vintage for lovers of classic Chablis.

    August 31, 2017 - A private tasting (at home): Tasted blind. Magnificent, classic, beautifully expressive, very youthful, I identified this wine correctly, but I guessed it was the 2010. Captivating stuff.

    August 19, 2017 - 93-94 Had next to '00 Latour Bienvenues Batard Montrachet, fun comparison of two very different style wines. This wine, while being on the fuller and richer side for chablis, was much leaner and crisper than the BBM. Showing some age, nice golden color, great acidity, balanced, lemon curd, green apple, iodine, and hints of oak. This paired well with the sea food dishes, especially shell fish.

    July 30, 2017 - If this doesn't deserve to be Grand Cru, then I don't know what does.

    A tsunami of dry extract followed by a mineral finish that lasts... and lasts... and lasts...

    It's a palate staining white wine, with as much body as any great red, which is a rare and wonderful thing.

    Beyond the dry extract and minerals lie a field of Meyer lemon, vanilla beans, and custard.

    I got lost in the field and wish I had never returned.

    I have been privileged to drink many bottles of Raveneau Monte de Tonerre, and it remains one of my all time favorite wines.

    This '05 is world class. It's a timely reminder that the best '05 whites can go the distance with any vintage.

    April 29, 2017 - Beautiful nose of lemon oil and chalky minerals. Quite concentrated and lush but with plenty of acidity and intensity and delicious flavors of lemon peel and oyster shells. Quite a luxurious style of Raveneau and very drinkable now and while I consider myself an acid freak, this satisfies and works even though it's clearly a lower-acid vintage. Finishes with chalky minerals and a salty character. Yum and still room for a bit of improvement. 93+
