About Domaine Francois Raveneau
Named for its original proprietor, who, sadly, left us in 2000, Domaine Francois Raveneau is a goliath in Chablis. Raveneau's two sons, Bernard & Jean-Marc, now continue the family tradition, maintaining a commitment to natural wine.

Classic, steely aromas of wet stone, gunflint and humid earth; a very pure expression of this grand cru site. Big and broad on the palate, with mouthstaining concentration, but much more backward than the Blanchots, and not yet showing that wine's sweetness or opulence of texture. Today, the strong acids have the upper hand. But finishes with explosive length and superb elegance. A great wine in the making. Makes a strong argument for Valmur as the next-best Chablis grand cru following Les Clos.
