Lot presentation

Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre Raveneau (Domaine) 2012

The wine

Chablis Premier Cru Montée de Tonnerre is produced from a terroir which could be classified as a Grand Cru due to the high quality of its terroir. Straightaway its nose brings to mind the mineral quality of this terroir, with its wonderful oyster shell, limestone and flinty notes but there are citrus notes present too. On the palate, this is a very lively wine with sapidity and a sublime substance. An exceptional Chablis which will reveal all its complex character after about ten or so years.

About the Producer Raveneau

Led by traditional methods (manual harvesting and controlled yields), Domaine Raveneau is today one of the most sought-after names of the Chablis appellation. The vineyard covers 7.5 hectares, divided into five premier crus and three grands crus. Jean-Marie and Bernard Raveneau, the current owners, maintain the desire for perfection that has typified the maison since its origins: for example, they prefer to harvest early to ensure a good level of natural acidity, even to chaptalise rather than picking an over-matured fruit. In three generations, ownership has risen to a legendary rank: its worldwide reputation means that the wines are practically unobtainable, especially since the domaine no longer accepts new customers, all its harvest being reserved in advance. The fine wines are consistently harmonious, with superb minerality thanks to a honeyed touch due to élevage in wood. These wines are popular worldwide.
