Nose has seashells, sea spray, fresh strawberries, cold butter or cream, washed lemons, lemon juice and over-ripe green apple.
Palate has lemon creme, (light) strawberry, lemon zest, mild oak, freshly whipped cream and wet flint.
Nice wine, our first time having this particular 1er Cru vineyard, but...the oak, while it is sort of neutral, it is the underlying impact to the palate. I'm thinking they likely do not use new oak, but 2-4 year old barrels, but just a little much for my palate on a Chablis. I'm really a fan of very neutral oak or all stainless steel treatment.
24 Hour Update: Wood notes are gone, all about (light) lemon curd, limestone paste and cut strawberry today, wonderfulness. — 3 days ago
Our dinner plans took a quick change when we received a call from our very fancy pants restaurant that the wine dinner (La Spinetta) was cancelled because the distributor didn't get them the wines...wtf, really? Our immediate back up was our favorite French bistro with the best comfort food one can ask for, delivered with precision every time, so consistent!
2017 Chablis, just amazing, got the cut strawberry note on the nose all night, then the wet limestone kicks in, great stuff, perfect restaurant bottle, immediately accessible. — 13 days ago
Mineral and acetone on nose. Touch sour, lemon rind and orange pith, steely long note. Drink very cold. Best with oysters, prawns, summer vegetables and a long, lazy late summer dinner outside. The choice by-the-glass white at Faubourg in Montclair. — 10 days ago
Light straw gold. Heavy weight in the glass. Sweet fruit nose. Notes of pineapple, sea shell, some apricot, white flowers and a little spice. Rich and fat in the mouth. Some acidity in the background. If I were to taste this blind I doubt I would guess Raveneau. But knowing the vigneron you can pick out the little notes which identify it as so. This is a pleasant drink right now with the warm vintage that provides the bright fruit with semi decent acidity. — 13 days ago
