Light and clear. Lime and chalk and steel. Salinity but quite ripe for Raveneau. Lovely intensity, a hint of grapefruit and good balance.

A proper Burg at the perfect place. Great to check in on the baby MDT, but it’s rocking already out of the decanter with incredible power and energy to its riveting depth of yellow fruit expression, layered minerality and piercing lemony acids with signature MDT density and texture. A classic vintage with many years ahead.

A lineup of 1993-2013 Chapelot and Mont de Milieu 1er Cru Chablis. Not surprisingly, this ‘93 Raveneau came out on top.

Botrytis kinda nose: honey+funk, saffron, ginger. Medicinal aspirin. Mineral forestry stream. Coconut, cream vanilla, Brioche, tangerine blossom, baking spices - nutmeg, allspice. Beautiful golden color.

Great stuff. A punchy nose of Rick pools, steel, chalk and salinity. Beautiful balance on the palate with hints of pear and yellow flowers. Crazy good Montee with all the refined edges and angularity of 04

Beautiful calm balance with gentle lemon and chalk. Steely focus and delicate floral notes. So pretty.

Beautifully composed. Certainly aged with lanolin, gentle honey but still fresh, poised and beautifully balanced. Long and pure. Exceptional

Beautiful, poised. Very Raveneau. A calm nose with soft lemon, slate, some marine notes. Secondary notes showing through now- a little peach, some light spice too

Light gold in color. A hint of honey, freshness, shells, lemon oil, some secondary characteristics coming through. Settled, poised with delicate acidity. Very good.

Medium gold color. Heavy in the glass like oil. Killer nose. Notes of ripe apricot, tan spice, sea breeze, cardamom, some chalky limestone soil and sea shells. Rich and silky in the mouth. Light and not too heavy. Long finish. In a great spot.
