There is just enough wood present to warrant commenting on as it sets off a less expressive nose that is comprised of mineral reduction, floral, pear and iodine scents. The palate impression is one of bigger, richer and more muscular flavors that also provide a lovely touch of stoniness on the solidly lingering finish that also displays a hint of warmth. As it usually is, this is a bit more structured with enough dry extract to allow this to be enjoyed young too.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux has a sensual nose with subtle hazelnut, smoke and almost resinous scents, verging on Riesling scents, that are beautifully defined. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with pleasing, mouth-watering salinity, easing back toward the finish with Granny Smith apples and a healthy dash of lemongrass. I can imagine this changing a lot in bottle – it comes across as a mercurial Chablis Butteaux.
Neal Martin - Wine Advocate #220 (Aug 2015)
Very pale yellow. Aromas of lemon curd, minerals and menthol. Tightly wound and sharply chiseled, with brisk flavors of ripe peach and orange accented by dusty minerality. Classically dry but not austere. Shows a lovely balance of ripe fruit and mineral tension and finishes with excellent spine. Very fresh and strong for the year.
