Nice regal gold hue. Amazing pit fruit and wet stone nose. Plus notes of apricot, white clay soil, salty ocean breeze and some Raveneau honey on the finish. Rich and powerful in the mouth. Coats the palate with lots of fruit and fine grained acidity. I’ve had this a few times and this was at its best. Great Raveneau at age 30 is an amazing treat.

Tasted blind. Light gold color. Leesy old white burg nose. Notes of stones, pit fruit, a little apricot and some honeydew melon. Luscious fruit in the mouth with fine grained acidity. Builds its impact with air. Great wine. Guessed 90 Bonneau du Martray CC.

Nice golden hue, looks heavy and rich in the glass. Honeyed fragrant nose. Notes of sweet apricot, mango, lemon, white clay, tan spice, and stones. Nice intensity in the mouth, with gobs of fruit matched against acidity that built over the afternoon. Telltale aged Raveneau honey, exotic today but not over the top. I brought this and it was the best of the couple or so bottles of it that I've had. Was at its best with ~5 hours of air, and leftover was still singing the next morning.

Medium gold, heavy and viscous in the glass. Classic aged Raveneau nose with stone, honey, apricot, white clay and a little spice. With 3 hrs of air this blossomed and had full on fruit and acidity that fought to see what wins. It was a draw and My lunch mates were the winners. I think this is still in a good spot but I don't think it will get better; enjoy it now.

From a perfect looking bottle with a high fill. Heavy bright gold. First taste makes your face flush. Has some powerful acidity and fruit to match. Viscous. Notes of lemon, honey, spice, cardamom and apricot. So rich in the mouth. Built more refined acidity with air. Killer juice.
