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.

Bright, pale yellow. Reticent aromas of white peach, lemon and resiny oak, with a violet topnote. Suave, full and quite dry, in fact downright austere on the back half. A more opulent but less refined style than the Montee de Tonnerre or Butteaux but at the same time almost musclebound today and very difficult to taste. Blanchots makes a heavy wine in the hot years, notes Raveneau, adding that this holding features the estate's oldest vines.
