"Purloined by Isabelle Raveneau to share over dinner, the 1995 Chablis 1er Cru les Butteaux showed beautifully after 22 years. The bouquet is intense with lime, dried honey, lanolin and a slight touch of wet wool, as if borrowed from a mature Chenin Blanc. It has superb delineation, though maybe you could argue it lacks a little subtlety. The palate is very well balanced, quite viscous on the entry with great depth. Lime and grapefruit at first, then more tropical tones of guava and pawpaw with a thick, waxy-textured finish. I appreciate the presence and volume of this Butteaux, and pristine bottles should keep another decade. Tasted June 2017." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Aug 31, 2017)
