Straw gold with great weight and heaviness in the glass. Killer nose. Notes of apricot, tan spice, apple cinnamon and sweet honey dew. Impactful in the mouth with lots of acidity and a lasting finish. With 5 hours of air this was singing.

Just short of medium gold. Bright. Heavy in the glass. Gorgeous nose. Distinctly Raveneau. Notes of apricot, white clay, ocean breeze and a little honey. Tan spice, intense and floral. Palate coating in the mouth. Nice acidity comes on with air. Good sh*t.

Medium gold. Heavy in the glass. Opened decanted for an hour. Knockout nose. Notes of lemon, white stone with some oyster shell, and a bit of honey develops over time. Rich luscious fruit in the mouth. Acidity hides in the first few hours, then powers up. Great juice.

Yellow gold. Heavier in the glass than the 06. Nice exotic nose. Has developed nice secondary notes of clay, spice, lemon and oyster shells. Complex. Some honey shows up. Big in the mouth but the finish was a bit thin, even with hours of air. Not sure if this will get any better from here.

1996 vintage. Extra ordinary. Many layers. Classic iodine with mushrooms and crab shell.
