Burghound, 90-93 Points 

"A more floral nose reflects notes of green apple, lemon rind and tidal pool nuances. The sleek and intense medium weight flavors are not quite as concentrated, but they're better delineated on the palate coating, bone-dry and impressively long finale. Excellent potential here. *Burghound Outstanding!*

Decanter, 92 Points 

"The vines at Butteaux are planted on clay, Kimmeridgian soil. Much more restrained on the nose, this needs time (and aeration) to coax out of the glass. Powerfully structured, this Butteaux will keep very well, given the density and concentration on show. A classic Chablis in character." 

John Gilman, 92 points 

"It was interesting that the 2021 Butteaux chez Michel was still quite expressive on both the nose and palate, in comparison to the two previous wines, as it had not yet started to shut down from the mise. The bouquet is beautiful, offering up scents of lime, apple, a complex base of chalky minerality, beeswax and white lilies. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied and complex, with an excellent core of fruit, zesty acids, lovely focus and a long, classy and impeccably balanced finish. 2024-2050." 

Jasper Morris, 90-92 Points 

"Heavily frosted here on the upper slope where the snow was heavier. Mid lemon yellow. The nose shows some concentration but is a little bit abrupt. However, the fruit swells very attractively on the palate, with just a little youthful bitterness at the back to provide tension. Still, not quite the grip of the great vintages. Drink from 2024-2028. Tasted: June 2022."

Alcohol: 13%
