(it's fascinating to see the contrast between these three wines as both Butteaux and Forêts are sub-climats of Montmains) A touch of wood highlights airy and impressively complex aromas that are compelling if not necessarily elegant, introducing rich, full and powerful flavors that possess solid buffering fat and plenty of minerality on the impressively intense and persistent finish. I quite like the balance here and this should be capable of 5 to 8 years of improvement.

($66) Bright yellow color. Crushed stone, snap pea, white truffle and vanilla on the nose. Fat, silky and full, but without any impression of undue weight. Impressively horizontal and fleshy for premier cru, and utterly seamless. Finishes with superb length and considerable complexity. Looks to be an outstanding example of this premier cru bottling.

The spiced mineral-scented 2004 Chablis Butteaux is a pretty, medium-bodied wine. Its engaging, satin-textured personality unleashes delightful spiced apple flavors. This potentially outstanding effort has lovely depth of fruit and a terrific mouth-feel.

Wine Spectator | 93

Lean and tight, with lemon verbena, citrus blossom and stone notes. This is balanced, though the structure is more evident now, with a long, mineral-infused finish. Has plenty of energy and vivacity.
