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 cool and airy nose freely offers up its aromas of green apple, quinine, shellfish and lemon zest. The utterly delicious but solidly intense flavors are sleek and mineral-infused while displaying very fine length on the bone-dry, clean and well-balanced finale. This too is very promising, indeed it's even better than it usually is, and should develop well over the next decade plus.

Notions of pear, citrus oil, white peach and spring flowers introduce the 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Forêt, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and precise wine that's elegant and fine-boned, concluding with a long, saline finish. As usual, this is the Raveneau premier cru to pick if you want to open a bottle young. Date: Jul 2022; Drink: 2025-2045; Rating: 91 Points; William Kelley; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
