(it's fascinating to see the contrast between these three wines as both Butteaux and Forêts are sub-climats of Montmains) An almost invisible touch of wood frames more reserved but fresher green and yellow fruit aromas that also offer up a subtle touch of spice that complements the round and wonderfully intense flavors that ooze that lovely sense of underlying tension as well as plenty of oyster shell character on the citrus-infused and very dry palate staining finish. A wine of power and finesse that should age out to 15 years or so.

(tasted from a one-year-old feuillatte Good pale color. Reticent citrus peel nose complemented by a grilled note. Juicy, tight and metallic; this is all cut today yet avoids coming off as hard. Finishes precise and long, with slowly mounting flavors of grapefruit, powdered stone and mint coating the palate. Less showy than the Vaillons, with a tighter grain.

Raveneau's 2006 Chablis Butteaux signals exotic ripeness from the first whiff of pear drops and lychee. Lush, rich fruit follows on the palate, but with chalk, iodine, and wood smoke adding counterpoint and pulling one's attention toward the particularly strong mineral dimension that is inherent in this site. Finishing with real grip, this promises a decade's worth of fascinating evolution.
