    November 19, 2019 - Super intense and concentrated Raveneau Grand Cru with potent acidity and great flavors of tart lemons and chalky minerals. It softened a bit with time in the glass but it's still very structured and regal with a monumental texture and great mineral content. Finishes intense and complex but clearly the wine is not as integrated as the '02 Butteaux drunk alongside. I love where this is going though. 94+

    September 24, 2019 - Tart citrus nose with white and yellow flowers. Some chalky notes. Good crisp acidity on the finish. 94+

    September 21, 2019 - Full throttle seabreeze, lime, and oyster shell on the nose. But it is the palate where everything comes together: Impressive concentration, balanced acidity, great weight, long finish. The 2008 Blanchot is excellent.

    July 24, 2019 - Young bottle with great definition. Subdued citrus fruits with good underlying minerality. Still significant upside potential from here. 94+

  • Burgnick Likes this wine: 93 points

    June 28, 2019 - Sea breeze, limestone, flint, lemon peel, and seashell on the nose and palate. Great concentration where the balance between the bright acidity and core fruit was precisely harmonious. For my taste, it is still painfully young where the grand cru flavour is still playing a bit of hide and seek. Give it plenty of time.
