Along with 02, 04 and 10, 08 is one of my absolute favorite vintages from Raveneau. Tonight it is excellent and still markedly youthful. A multi hour decant brings out its superb weight, density, waxy yellow fruit and stony minerality with piercing lemony acids and saline driven finish. 2008 for me, is all about that Chablisian balance: proper levels of richness and acid, ripeness and minerality. Code yellow 🥳

Slightly tropical. Lychee, lime, limestone. Very pure and intense and light. Really delicious.

Gorgeous nose. Soft and pretty but a great mineral underpinning. Sweet around the edges. Very long and pure. Delicious

Bright and fresh. Very precise. Savory with some almost tropical notes. Green apple, limestone, slate, salt. Very clear. Delicious

Lemon, chalk. Pretty and slightly sweet at the edges. A little blurry in definition

I loved this wine when I first tasted it nearly a decade ago. Still magnificent; fresh, vibrant and full of life!

A gorgeous lifted nose with sweet white flowers, limestone, a hint of lime. Rich and sweet on the palate. Great balance and purity

Raveneau Butteaux 2010 is in such a great place. It actually requires very little air to get going. It’s quick to show off its waxy yellow fruit, oyster shell minerality and amazing purity and tension.
