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.
This too is quite cool with its pure and elegant nose that features plenty of classic Chablis character as well as abundant floral elements that are laced with nuances of wet stone, oyster shell and smoky mineral reduction. There is good energy, cut and minerality to the middle weight flavors that possess a really lovely sense of underlying tension while displaying outstanding length on the firm and balanced finale that is a bit less youthfully austere than usual.

Aromas of honeysuckle, orange rind, beeswax and orchard fruits introduce the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot, a full-bodied, deep and multidimensional wine with a satiny attack, a fleshy core and a long, precise finish. Concentrated but lively, it's very promising. Tasted: Aug 19; Drink: NA; Rating: 92-94+ Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
