At barely seven years of age this is only just beginning to loosen up with its beautifully layered aromas of spiced pear, mineral reduction, sea shore and green fruit scents. There is a wonderful complexity to the powerful and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors that possess excellent intensity on the slightly austere and moderately dry finish that delivers outstanding length. It's clear that this is very much still on the way up and I would be inclined to hold it at least another 4 to 6 years but overall, this is really quite impressive. Tasted several times with consistent notes save for one other bottle that displayed the barest hint of premox though not so much that it completely spoiled the experience.

I ordered a bottle of the 2010 Chablis 1er Cru les Butteaux at the impeccable Au Fil du Zinc restaurant in Chablis and immediately grabbed my pen to scribble a tasting note. This is such a scintillating Chablis, one that encapsulates everything great about the 2010 vintage. The nose is mineral through and through--imagine getting down on your hands and knees and just inhaling limestone after a shower. The palate continues that tensile, mineral-driven theme. It is incredibly tense, perhaps benefiting from a slight, but pleasant reduction towards the finish, with awesome length and precision. What a fantastic Butteaux from Domaine Raveneau.
Neal Martin - Wine Advocate #226 (Aug 2016)
Raveneau's 2010 Chablis Butteaux is beautifully expressive on the bouquet, where layers of petrol, smoke and melted rocks fuse together with notable elegance. The Butteaux is a wine of all dimensions; it is at once vertical and horizontal, with fabulous purity and exceptional overall balance. This is one of the larger-scaled 2010s here. In many ways it encapsulates the personality of the vintage.
