Reviews 91-92 points Wine Advocate "...explodes from the glass with pulp-laden apples and salty minerals. Loads of creamed almonds, sea salt, pears, and apples can be found in its boisterously flavored core. Medium-bodied and with terrific mouth-feel (like a goose-down pillow), it possesses an admirably long, expressive finish. (PR)" 92 points Burghound "Extremely subtle oak frames expressive and layered aromas of oyster shell, iodine and a lovely mineral component that leads to even more complex flavors that display superb intensity and stunning length. The finish is racy yet completely buffered by the copious sap. (AM)"

About Francois Raveneau

There is Chablis, and then there is Domaine François Raveneau. The appellation’s benchmark producer may only bottle a miniscule 3,000 cases per year, but it nevertheless manages to boast an impressive array of terroirs, including five premier cru and three grand cru vineyards. Celebrated for their consistently high quality and astounding age-worthiness, the wines of Domaine François Raveneau are true collectibles.

François Raveneau’s sons, Bernard and Jean-Marie, run the family estate today, with the help of Bernard's daughter, Isabelle. Together they continue to conjure the same magic as their father by following the family traditions, farming in some of Chablis’ most prized Kimmeridgian limestone soils. Unlike many of their neighbors, the brothers harvest entirely by hand. The Raveneau winemaking style includes a gentle pressing, fermentation in tank, while allowing the lees to settle and saving only the very finest before racking the wines into barrel for 18 months in neutral oak barrels and feuillettes. Penetrating and stony, aromatic and intense, these are among the finest Chardonnays in the world.
