   * **Chablis Blanchots** (29 Jun 2011): not oxidized but disappointing for Raveneau in a great Chablis vintage. [Don Cornwell]   * **Chablis Blanchots** (29 Jun 2011): not oxidized but disappointing for Raveneau in a great Chablis vintage. [Don Cornwell]
-  * **Chablis "​Blanchot"​** (Jul. 2017 – Nov. 2020): 4 btls not oxidized. Still in its adolescence in 2017/2018; reaching its plateau in early 2020. More citrus peel & fruit stones in the nose than white flowers. Charming & delicious on the palate. From a lot of 4 purchased in Nov. 2015 from Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant (library release by the domaine). [Rayner Cheung]+  * **Chablis "​Blanchot"​** (Jul. 2017 – Nov. 2020): 4 btls not oxidized.

   * **Chablis Butteaux** (Sep-Dec 2006): Several bottles, quite variable. 2 young and racy bottles, 3 open and soft and showing 1st signs of oxidation, 2 bottles very advanced and beginning to oxidize.

   * **Chablis "​Blanchot"​** (Feb. 2015 – Jul. 2018): 5 btls not oxidized. Still very primary & youthful in 2015; reaching its plateau of drinkability in 2018. Probably better decanted. No traces of "​2003"​ vintage traits (q.v. the comments on 2003 Vaillons). 3 btls purchased from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer in Nov. 2013 + 2 btls purchased from Kermit Lynch in early 2015.

-  * **Chablis "​Clos"​** (Mar. 2019 – ): btls not oxidized. A real gem of a wine from a difficult vintage. Best decanted, but requires less coaxing than the Valmur. With patience, there are strong hints of the depth & power found in more regular vintages. Sweet white flowers in the nose, together with delicate minerality & surprisingly colorful texture on the palate. Luxurious refinement. From a lot of 3 purchased in Apr. 2014 from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer, & a further 2 btls in Mar. 2015 from Kermit Lynch its West Coast importer.
