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 discreet application of wood sets off ripe orchard fruit suffused with oyster shell, lemon zest and cool iodine wisps. There is again fine density to the intense and stony medium weight flavors that deliver impressive persistence for a straight Chablis. This too is relative powerful and robust and a wine that will need at least some patience, but it also is a wine to strongly consider.
