Domaine François Raveneau

Butteaux Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2008

Along with 02, 04 and the majestic 2010, 08 is one of my absolute favorite vintages from Raveneau and it’s absolutely rocking tonight showing superb weight, density and waxy yellow fruit that’s layered with stony minerality and piercing lemony acids. 08 Raveneau is all about that Chablisian balance: proper levels of richness and acid, ripeness and minerality. Code yellow ftw 🙌🏻 — 7 months ago

Domaine Leflaive

Les Pucelles Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2002

Tasted blind. Light gold color. Fruit forward nose, almost tropical. Notes of green apple and orchard fruits, wet river stone, apricot, white flowers. Notably younger in its evolution than the first two bottles today, with a slightly lower heaviness and depth. I go with a guess of 2000 Leflaive Pucelles. Nice to see a young 02 Leflaive sans premox, with a lot of upside in front of it. 94+ — a year ago

15 person Champagne tasting with friends.

First time having their 06. Good but not nearly as stunning as their 02. Excellent mix of reductive & oxidative qualities.

Their ‘02 is an all-time favorite of mine.

Jones Family Vineyard

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

This Mag needed 30 minutes to blow off the 20 years, but it started going downhill quickly compared to other 02’s . Retail purchase so who knows storage conditions, — a year ago

Krug

Brut Champagne Blend 2000

Fresh and crystalline with a salty, oyster shell nose. A little sweetness in the front, a fiber mousse with tall detail and transparency. Light on its feet alongside the Dom 02. Not as intense but very pretty. — 2 years ago
