Once again the nose is both fresh and ripe though it’s not quite as elegant and airy as the Montmains though there is a bit more obvious Chablis character and particularly more mineral reduction. The sleeker if more muscular medium-bodied flavors are definitely more tightly coiled while displaying very good power and punch on the chiseled, bone dry and impressively lengthy finish. Lovely stuff.

The 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux is another of the highlights chez Raveneau this year, wafting from the glass with a bouquet of green apples, iodine, lemon rind, oyster shell and white flowers. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with promising cut and tension, good concentration and a long, mineral finish. This looks to be one of the most classically proportioned wines in the cellar in the 2018 vintage.
