    March 19, 2022 - Beautiful nose with notes of lemon oil, chard fruit, and flowers. Great complexity and a nice creamy note that offset the citrus flavors. Nice acidity on the palate with lemon zest, lime, and bright fruit flavors. Long finish. Awesome wine, perfectly balanced and drinking really well right now!

    February 26, 2022 - Très bon, un Raveneau délicat et en subtilité qui n'a jamais pas vraiment impressionné au niveau auquel le producteur nous a habitué. Il s'approche du côté plus discret de certains Forêts de millésime plus classique, et est resté un peu muet au nez malgré le classique miel. La bouche rassure avec une belle texture, du fruit blanc, et la finale est plaisante et délicate.

    March 7, 2019 - Nez : intensité aromatique normale sur des fruits jaunes à noyau – presque fruits exotiques – fleur d’oranger / orange –, de la cire d’abeille et des notes minérales.
    Bouche : l’attaque est assez expressive sur des fruits jaunes. De corps normal (+), le cœur de bouche démontre une certaine finesse de texture, un beau toucher, pas une énorme concentration mais un bel équilibre. Arômes de citron, de fruits jaunes, des épices et des amers.
    Finale de longueur assez bonne sur du citron, des fruits blancs, de la noisette, et se prolongeant sur de la cire d’abeille.
    Note : 16,25/20 i.e. 91/100

    October 29, 2018 - Lean yellow fruit, stone and minerals. Very sharp and precise but it needs time to add some weight. Not yet showing the layers of a superb raveneau. Needs time. Along with 08 Butteaux, this vintage of Raveneau needs more time.

    May 10, 2017 - Ethereally light and balanced, loads of nuance and exotic elements. Super light color, no signs of age. On the nose - wet slate, orange blossom, lemongrass, chamomile, lemon/lime meringue. Seamless on the palate with minerally citrus vanilla elements all in balance.
