Lot presentation

Chablis Raveneau (Domaine) 2012

The wine

Managing the inimitable Domaine Raveneau, Bernard and Jean-Marie Raveneau have crafted a simple Chablis with fine character. It has a wonderfully limpid colour with notes of white fruits, minerals, and white flowers. Its palate is a skilful blend of freshness, acidity, and minerality typical of the appellation. This wine is the perfect introduction to the domain’s savoir-faire

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.
