Community Tasting Notes 7

    September 17, 2021 - Popped and decanted for ~1+ hrs prior to serving. Light/pale-yellow... Faint scents of white-flowers/peach, more of lemons/citrus. Quite linear on the palate, with a good streak of minerality, acidity and tension. Expecting this to fill/flesh out over time with more cellar age.

    September 4, 2021 - J’aurais tendance à lui donner un point de plus pour des raisons émotives donc je me retiens. Il n’a certes pas la complexité d’un Chablis plus évolué mais c’est déjà superbe. Un exemple d’équilibre. Pas la tension que j’aurais craint à ce jeune stade sur un 2017, mais de la belle minéralité, une bouche complète, comme si le vin était un peu rond mais aussi fluide, c’est difficile à décrire. Une longue finale saline. Un grand vin, rien de moins.

    September 11, 2020 - Pale; a reductive note, half opens, focused ‘minerality’; steely, tight, penetrating intensity; nervosity & breed time extended finish. Needs five years.

    March 9, 2020 - For a Raveneau MdT this is relatively accessible at this early juncture. There are notes of white peach, lemon, aniseed and mint. It is full and textural, with great volume and a finish that is loaded with iodine. Ample acidity is buried just below the flesh.

    February 14, 2020 - Bottles drunk with lunch or dinner while in Burgundy; 2/10/2020-2/14/2020 (Burgundy): A delicious, expressive and true-to-terroir young MdT. So much decadent white orchard fruit with a pronounced core of minerality and zest. Nervous spine of acidity throughout. Delicious now and should age for two decades. 93-95+
