Allen Meadows Burghound 93


2005 François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux (France, Burgundy, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru) Burghound, 10/1/2007, 4th Quarter, 2007, Allen Meadows (web) 93 Easily the best of the these three Montmains climats with an aromatically reserved nose that is clearly less ripe offers nuances of white peach, pear and sea breeze that continue onto the impressively concentrated, intense and powerful flavors that possess excellent dry extract, all wrapped around a firm acid spine and terrific length. This has plenty of nervosité and real harmony of expression. (drink starting 2012)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 93


2005 François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux (France, Burgundy, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 11/1/2006, Nov/Dec 2006, John Gilman 93 The 2005 Butteaux seems about as transparent and refined as I can ever remember a young vintage of Raveneau tasting out of barrel. This is not a blockbuster this year, but a deep, racy and mineral-driven wine that offers up a complex mélange of lemon, licorice, spring flowers and a kaleidoscope of minerality. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and primary, with great depth and length, laser-like focus, just rapier-like acidity, and stunning grip on the finish. An excellent Butteaux in the making. (drink 2010-2025)
