The most sublime and the most celebrated estate of Chablis, the wines of Domaine Raveneau are a rare find—exceptional because the vineyard holdings are almost entirely made of grand cru and premier cru fruit, painfully finite as so few are produced, outstanding because of their tremendous quality and consistency, and unusual given the modesty of the vignerons who create these world-class wines. 

A slightly fresher if once again exotic nose combines notes of essence of pear, apple, citrus rind, petrol and discreet tidal pool wisps. There is a bit more size, weight and richness to the attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess both better and balance length on the nicely lingering finale.

The 2016 Chablis Villages wasn't too heavily impacted by the year's frosts, and it's quite classic in profile, offering up aromas of lemon oil, grapefruit pith, white flowers and crisp apples. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly glossy and bright, with a fleshy core underpinned by bright acids and a tangy, mouthwatering finish. Tasted: Sept 18; Drink: 2018-2028; Rating: 90 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
