Allen Meadows Burghound 92


2006 François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux (France, Burgundy, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru) Burghound, 10/1/2008, 4th Quarter, 2008, Allen Meadows (web) 92 An almost invisible touch of wood frames more reserved but fresher green and yellow fruit aromas that also offer up a subtle touch of spice that complements the round and wonderfully intense flavors that ooze that lovely sense of underlying tension as well as plenty of oyster shell character on the citrus-infused and very dry palate staining finish. A wine of power and finesse that should age out to 15 years or so. (drink starting 2011)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 94


2006 François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux (France, Burgundy, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 11/1/2007, Nov/Dec 2007, John Gilman 94 This was all sitting in two year-old feuillattes in the cellar, and will be a brilliant vintage for this often overlooked and extremely ageworthy Raveneau premier cru. The bouquet on the ’06 Butteaux is a stellar blend of apple, lemon, beeswax, a touch of vanilla pastry cream from the younger wood and a great base of soil. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, long and absolutely tensile, with stunning mid-palate depth, great cut and grip and a profoundly long, minerally backend. There is a precision to the focus of this wine that is almost gem-like, with the minerality expressed as crystalline in nature. An amazing vintage for the Butteaux. (drink 2014-2040)
