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.
Ripe and appealingly fresh aromas are comprised by notes of citrus, white peach, shellfish and a whisper of iodine along with a deft application of wood. There is once again very solid volume to the more finely textured flavors that possess very good verve before concluding in a refreshing bitter lemon-inflected finish. This promising and relatively powerful effort should reward up to a decade of cellaring. Date: Nov 2020; Drink: 2028+; Issue: 80; Comments: Outstanding; Rating 92 Points; Allen Meadows; Burghound
