Wine Expert Note:

Raveneau Chablis Premier Cru 'Butteaux' is a highly regarded white wine from the Chablis region in Burgundy, France. This Premier Cru vineyard, 'Butteaux', is known for producing exceptional Chardonnay grapes, which are carefully crafted into a wine that showcases the unique terroir of the area. On the nose, this wine exhibits enticing aromas of citrus fruits, such as lemon and grapefruit, along with hints of green apple and white flowers. The palate is crisp and refreshing, with a vibrant acidity that is characteristic of Chablis wines. Flavors of lemon zest, mineral notes, and a touch of salinity create a complex and well-balanced profile. The Raveneau Chablis Premier Cru 'Butteaux' displays a beautiful tension between its bright fruit flavors and the underlying minerality, which adds depth and complexity to the wine. It has a medium to full body, with a long and elegant finish that leaves a lasting impression. This wine is best enjoyed when served chilled, and it pairs wonderfully with seafood dishes, particularly oysters, as well as grilled fish and creamy goat cheese. It has the potential to age gracefully, developing further complexity and depth over time.

Raveneau Petit Chablis is a white wine from the Chablis appellation in Burgundy, France. Produced by a renowned family-owned winery. Made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown across the wider Chablis area on heavier clay-based soils. The wine show great depth of citric flavors and piercing acidity that is balanced by a textured mouthfeel from aging in large, old, oak casks. The winery is unique due to their focus approach and insistance upon very low yields, which result in concentrated wines that are flagship examples of their type. The wines of this domaine are amongst the best examples of Chablis available.
