    September 27, 2020 - was showing its age when first opened.Lacking precision and rather flat. Time and air brings out mint, slate and actually enjoyable. imho opinion this wine has seen better days. 90

    July 24, 2020 - #2 of 6. This bottle was as good a bottle of Butteaux as I have had. Clearly firing on all cylinders. I agree with others that this is a little rounder and oilier than I have found in other vintages of this wine.

    July 4, 2020 - An atypically fresh and strong bottle. Up and down performances with some of the '02s. Good chalky citrus notes, mid range tacky acids, and a nicely progressing palate. 93+

    June 7, 2020 - Lovely nose of lime blossom and oyster shell, potent and forward. Medium bodied with still-fresh acidity and saline minerality. There's a pleasing uniformity to Raveneau's 2002 Butteaux with both the acid and stoney, floral flavors offering consistent shape and intensity from first sip through to the persistent finish. Excellent.

    November 19, 2019 - A perfect bottle showing beautifully with plenty of zingy acidity but it's well-integrated into the wine. There is succulent lemony fruit along with hints of clove and oyster shell minerals. It has that light yet oily texture of aged Raveneau with nice tertiary notes on the very complex finish of brioche and sweet chalk. Gorgeous and at plateau.
