Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 90

“From a parcel of younger vines, the 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Forêt offers up attractive aromas of lemon, green apple, oystershell and spring flowers. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, glossy and pure, with racy acids, attractive purity and a delicately chalky finish. It’s one of the most elegantly open-knit wines in the Raveneau cellar.” [William Kelley, 31/08/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028

Vinous – 89-92

(the yield from these roughly 35-year-old vines was in the normal range of 45 to 50 hectoliters per hectare, according to Isabelle Raveneau): Pale yellow. Classic Chablis notes of citrus fruits, menthol and white flowers, with an attractive "cold" aspect that I did not find in the previous wines. Then gentle on the palate in spite of its freshness, offering flavors of soft citrus fruits, menthol and powdered stone. Not a particularly fruity style but pliant. Isabelle noted that these vines, like those in the family’s Butteaux holding, are very healthy. [Stephen Tanzer, 08/01/2017]
