    February 7, 2020 - Drank the same wine almost a year ago, at the same location. It is as good as the last bottle, super expressive, beautiful stage to enjoy this wine, showing strong minerality, citrus fruits, and acidity was precise and lingering. I always like Vaillons and feel that it is more expressive than other 1er cru, not sure if it is because Vaillons location at the upper left bank of Chablis?
    We also had a 2008 Dauvissaut Le Clos side by side, in the beginning, Dauvissut seems riper on the nose and palate, got some lemon oil and citrus cream, interestingly, over next 6 hours, it evolved into an elegant beauty with nice salinity, white peaches, white pepper, offering concentrated yet layers of acidity and spices on the finish.

    May 10, 2019 - Bought it off menu from Robuchon.
    Super expressive, lemon peel, modest creaminess citrus butter, oyster shell, light honey and very herbal nose, on the palate, deep structure with lots of things going on, strong minerals, wet stone, creamy oyster, Rav’s distinctive herbal sensation. Love it.

    April 4, 2019 - Overperformer for a Vaillons. Strength of Raveneau in the vintage comes through in the combination of depth and precision in wine where one does not typically expect it. Pristine bottle.

    August 9, 2018 - 2002 Raveneau Chablis was a beautiful wine with crushed stone, lemon peel, stone fruit and gun powder. Palate was precise and long with plenty of acidity. The layers and acidty bursted out with time in the glass. Lots of things going on. Time has really toned down the chablis salinity and created a harmonious expression between terroir and Raveneau’s wine-making style. It can age easily for another 10-15 years given the acidity profile. 93+
