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.
As is often the case this is the most elegant, if also the most restrained, wine in the range with its cool, pure and reserved nose of citrus, white flower, iodine and sea breeze-scented aromas that also exhibit mineral reduction whiffs. The refinement continues on the rich and full-bodied flavors that manage to retain both good delineation and plenty of minerality on the palate coating, clean, focused and hugely long finale. This is on the drier side in the context of the vintage and should amply reward at least a decade, and perhaps even a bit more, of bottle age.
