A ripe, expressive and elegant is nose is now fully mature though the exotic fruit aromas this displayed in its youth are still present. There is really lovely richness to the succulent yet well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that offer fine minerality on the long and mouth coating finish. For my taste, this is now fully mature as there is no additional development upside to be had though it should drink well for at least another decade. Note that, like all of the Raveneau '01s, this is not cut from the cloth of classic Chablis as the light botrytis notes confer upon the nose and flavors a definite exoticism. Tasted thirce over the past 5 years recently with consistent results.
