Cool and restrained. Hints of lemon, limestone, slate. Delicate and focused on the midpalate.

Paired with grilled scallops in a creamy cauliflower sauce. The beautiful Nose is expressive and complex and develops constantly in the glass, lemon, menthol, orchard white and yellow fruit, sea shells, honeysuckle. Palate is complex, rich and full, large with a backward acidity that is there nonetheless, slightly austere, just a tad, great finish. Excellent and needs a few years but very Raveneau in style. 92-93

Un superbe nez très expressif et qui se développe beaucoup dans le verre, citron, coquillages, fruits blancs et jaunes, miel. La bouche est tout aussi belle, riche, pleine et large avec une acidité en retrait mais bien présente, une touche d’austérité toutefois. C’est excellent mais a besoin de temps, de style très Raveneau. 92-93

Spectacularly rich. Great fruit. A tad oily. Almost spicy. Delicious.

Bright fruit with zesty, mineral-laden aromatics, with floral, herbal, and lightly spicy flavors following. On the palate, the fruit has impressive nerve, with a light lactic edge that gives it a full, broad texture. Stony, almost smoky, with light nuttiness, yeasty spiciness, and a finish that is very zesty to the point of making the palate beg for more in salivation. Lightly buttery, but over time this should change. Incredibly seductive now, but full Chablis class all the way. Can't wait to see what this will become!
