Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

Reduced aromas of ripe apple, pepper, spearmint and crushed stone. Broad and rich; less obviously mineral than the 2012 version but the ripe, intense pineapple flavor will give this wine good early accessibility. Finishes with a firm stony edge.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The Raveneau 2011 Chablis Butteaux smells of elderflower and iris as well as of the lime and white peach that form its juicy palate matrix. Chalk and white pepper in this wine's sustained finish ' like its firmness of feel ' convey a certain austerity, but you can count on its having more expressive moments between now and 2020.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay


Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
