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.

Pale yellow. High-toned, slightly exotic pineapple aroma-"heavier, like the '06," notes Bernard Raveneau. Fat and oily on the palate but with a very dry impression in spite of its ripe pineapple flavors. Very long and a bit warm on the back end, with a trace of finishing bitterness. In style this is more Cote de Beaune than Chablis. Much broader than the sample I tasted a year ago from barrel. Today, this one strikes me as the oddball among these 2005s.
