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. — a day ago
A composed and lovely nose with hints of soft pretty lemon, chalk and great poise. On the palate it’s subtle but expansive. Very detailed and supple. Underneath the restraint there’s a very powerful midpalate with fruit that will last And last. Great stuff. — 11 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. — 11 days ago
an under the radar producer, I’ve had only a few wines from this domaine and each has been a headturner. This young Chablis is so focused and precise, lime zest and lemon, green apple, a bit of minerals. No chalk or oyster shell yet, but it’s got a lot of Chablis character and is a real refreshing quaff that has all the tastebuds happily humming in unison. Really intense and concentrated, it’s got a long future. Highly recommended. — 14 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. — 11 days ago
