"More classic and Chablis-like' is how Isabelle Raveneau often describes this Premier Cru bottling, sourced from a cool, windy spot within Montmains. It's a wine that always takes a while to show at its best, showing considerable restraint and focus, a hint of new wood, wet stone and chalky mineralty and a long, tapering, leesy finish. Buy some and lay it down.More classic and Chablis-like' is how Isabelle Raveneau often describes this Premier Cru ... read more

"This offers some very exotic aromas of green mangoes and white peaches, as well as a very fresh, lemon-curd edge and crushed stones, oyster shell and wet chalk. The palate has a strong, fresh and cool mineral core for this warmer vintage. Pastry-like density to the strongly mineral finish. Drink from 2024."

Wine Advocate 93
'My favorite premier cru in the range this year is the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux, a lovely wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of citrus oil, green apple, pear, oyster shell and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, taut and structured, with fine concentration and chalky extract, it concludes with a mouthwateringly saline finish.My favorite premier cru in the range this year is the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux, a lovely wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of citrus."
About Domaine Francois Raveneau
The domaine was created in 1948, when François Raveneau consolidated his holdings with his wife's family's vineyard parcels. Though his father had spent years selling off prime parcels, François was doing his best to bring new ones back into the hands of the domaine. The reputation of this elusive and somewhat stoic vigneron spread quickly, as his style was easily recognizable as far superior to the growing trend of innocuous, somewhat uniform Chardonnay. The domaine's production has always been miniscule, and Kermit fought in vain throughout the seventies to add these wines to his portfolio. As an ardent practitioner of natural wines, François was extremely skeptical about shipping overseas, fearing that the wines might suffer during the ocean voyage. Assured by friends that Kermit was very familiar with natural wines and only shipped in refrigerated containers, François finally agreed (see Adventures on the Wine Route). The relationship started with the 1979 vintage and has continued solidly ever since. Today, François' sons, Bernard and Jean-Marie, direct the domaine, yet stay true to their father's philosophy in both the vineyards and the cellar.
