A typical tale of Raveneau. Best after 3 hours in the decanter. I really do love Raveneau’s 13’s. It’s an early drinking vintage (by Raveneau standards) while you wait for the surrounding ones. There’s immense richness and depth of waxy yellow fruit and stony minerals on the palate with créme fraîche, spices and a touch of botrytis influenced saffron in its layered aromatics. Superb cut and racy lemony acids provide a seamless balance to its power and richness. No surprise, beautiful wine. — 9 days ago
Matches, crushed stones, pear, white peach, oyster shell, whit pepper, hint of cinnamon yoghurt. Beautiful wine as usual. — 10 days ago

Classic Chablis, delicious — 5 days ago
This has really changed or at least this bottle. The acidity has perked up significantly. Very tight on opening, needing about 30-60 minutes of air. Lemon zest, oyster shell and minerals. Beautifully composed, pairing so well with a diverse array of food (tonight was fusilli with clams, Serrano, pecorino, garlic and roasted cherry tomatoes). It’s amazing how this wine went from low acidity and almost flabby to tight with punchy acidity. I have one bottle left that I will likely drink this coming year. — 7 days ago
Talk about over delivering. Drinking well above its price point and the designation. Medium intensity on the nose with green apples and flint initially. Citrus and floral aromas then come to the forefront after some time.
Well made with terrific balance and structure through and through. Nutty and citrusy with far more depth than you’re expecting for an entry level bottle. Expressive grapefruit and pears on the palate. Chalk, vanilla, and a smidgeon of butter complements. A really, really solid Chablis and an outstanding value.
