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. Very closed nose hints at stone and marzipan. In a silky, sweet style, especially following the more closed-in Montee de Tonnerre, with flavors of lemon confit and minerals. Boasts enticing mid-palate sweetness but finishes distinctly stony and more austere. This is less marked by the recent bottling than the Montee de Tonnerre but I'm not convinced that it will be as complex in the long run.
