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.
In much the same fashion as the Montée de Tonnerre, the floral character of the nose is quite prominent though the broad-ranging nose also displays notes of wet stone, pear, sea breeze and quinine. The delicious yet quite serious medium weight flavors possess excellent punch and drive on the mineral-driven, balanced and impressively persistent if ever-so-slightly warm finale. This is more powerful than it usually is yet the amount of dry extract will permit it to drink well young. Score: 92 Points; Tasted: Oct 2015; Drink: 2019+; Issue: 60; Allen Meadows - Burghound
