We had the 2015 Montee de Tonnerre on 7/19/21. A really good Chablis with a bouquet of stone fruit and minerality. A palate of lemon curd and vanilla on the palate. Well balanced, rich and intense. — 2 years ago
A total stunner on the pnp, which for Raveneau I consider unusual, as a typical prep is often a multi hour decant. This was so in the zone, with a nose that was just to die for. Palate is deep and tense and showing a seamless balance of crushed seashells, orchard fruit and a secondary honeyed character. A perfect showing. — 2 years ago
Perfect expression of an unoaked Chardonnay. Lots of citrus, green fruits and flint. Excellent pairing for a lobster dinner — 3 years ago
Haven’t tried the other years. But this is award winning for a reason. Needs a little time to breathe, great for a warm summers evening — 2 years ago
Less acidity than I am used to I. The Vaulorent. But still an almost ideal pairing with oysters. — 2 years ago
Medium gold with a slight tinge of greenish undertones. The bouquet truly blossoms with a burst of pretty flowers and wheat stalks. The customary citrus notes are here showcasing dried pears, lime zest, and some slightly intense lemon. This really is quite a lovely nose going on here. Flint and minerality begin to shine with time in the glass.
A fuller bodied Chablis but still light on its feet. Swaying gracefully the entire time, it comes to life in the glass. High acidity and dry with charisma. The fruit is polished and juicy. Surprising amount of depth for this price point. Herbs and apples on the palate along with more citrus and a dab of honey. Medium long finish with a bit of spice. This is really fun. — 2 years ago
