Resin, spices, and menthol notes can be detected in the aromatic profile of the 2004 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre. A sappy, fleshy wine, it offers a light to medium-bodied character filled with salt, sea shells, slate, and minerals. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. ||The Raveneau brothers were in the process of bottling their 2004s when I visited the estate in late April, 2006. “This is a vintage of pleasure, the 2004s are simple wines, they do not have a powerful constitution,” said Bernard Raveneau, who concentrates on vineyard work and handles the vinifications. (His brother Francois deals with all the tractor work as well as the administrative issues.) He reiterated what I’d heard in all of Burgundy’s cellars, that the yields had gotten totally out of control during the rain-plagued month of August. “We harvested 70 hectoliters per hectare on average across the entire estate. We’ve never seen such a plethoric vintage!” Wine Advocate.June, 2006
