Canary gold color, looks young. Memorable nose with notes of lemon, honeysuckle, white acacia blossoms, and white clay with that Kimmeridgian characteristic that says Chablis. With more air, you also get sea shells and ocean breeze, and the telltale Raveneau honey comes out. Coats the mouth... has a huge richness matched against robust structure. This becomes more sweet and exotic as the evening progresses. Of all the bottles tonight, this was gone first. As good as Chablis can get. (Bday 4 of 13)

So fresh and clean, bright, tense and perhaps just a touch of botrytis? Very dense flavors. Young

Lt gold color. Heavy in the glass. HUGE nose of stone, honey, marzipan, and soil. Unbelievable in the mouth. Has it all going for it. Just entering a very long drinking window I think. Maybe a top 2 or 3 white burg wine of all time for me.
