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.
88 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2009
($50) Pale, green-tinged color. Classic austere Chablis aromas of crushed stone, lime, menthol and minerals. Juicy and brisk, with noteworthy intensity and cut to the citrus and mineral flavors. An excellent first release for this wine, from densely planted vines behind the bottom of Montmains (the Raveneaus had owned this land but never planted it until 2003). I underestimated this wine last spring-but the 2008 will be even better.
