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. Deeply pitched aromas of pineapple, crushed stone and spicy oak (Bernard Raveneau noted that this cuvee was aged in a bit more new oak than the rest). Lovely creamy pineapple and marzipan flavors display full ripenes but are given grip and energy by excellent harmonious acidity. The silkiest and deepest of these 2009s. Finishes very long and tactile, with a distinctly tannic impression that leaves the mouth a bit dry. This very rich, powerful wine will require patience.
