A gentle touch of wood highlights airy yet slightly riper high-toned and admirably pure aromas of white flower, pear and quinine that gives way to supple, sweet, mouth coating and impressively concentrated flavors that exude a marvelous intensity on the long, powerful and driving finish supported by a solid acid spine. Definitely worth a look if you can find it but unlike most '06s, be prepared to have at least some patience as this is unusually firm for the vintage. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct01,2008.

From vines averaging 40 years of age, the Raveneau 2006 Chablis Montee de Tonerre features ripe pineapple, lychee, grapefruit, and brown spices. piquant, pithy, yet deeply sweet nuttiness. an almost tactile sense of chalk dust. formidable sheer density. and a brothy richness that can only be compared with a bone-rich meat stock reduction. It finishes with citric brightness, richness of fruit, and profundity of minerality, and should reward up to 10-12 years of cellaring. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate Oct 2008

I think he underestimates the depth of his own 2006s, and only hope I have opportunity to revisit some of them in five or ten years. Wine Advocate.October, 2008
