There is just enough wood present to warrant commenting on as it sets off a less expressive nose that is comprised of mineral reduction, floral, pear and iodine scents. The palate impression is one of bigger, richer and more muscular flavors that also provide a lovely touch of stoniness on the solidly lingering finish that also displays a hint of warmth. As it usually is, this is a bit more structured with enough dry extract to allow this to be enjoyed young too.

The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux has a sensual nose with subtle hazelnut, smoke and almost resinous scents, verging on Riesling scents, that are beautifully defined. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with pleasing, mouth-watering salinity, easing back toward the finish with Granny Smith apples and a healthy dash of lemongrass. I can imagine this changing a lot in bottle – it comes across as a mercurial Chablis Butteaux.
