2014 Domaine François Raveneau Chablis ‘Montée de Tonnerre’ 1er Cru


Not only does the Raveneau family own many of the finest sites in the appellation, but their wines have a steely magnificence that captures the essence of Chablis’ distinctive terroir. The greatness of Raveneau’s Chablis has even led some to suggest they deserve an appellation of their own.
Raveneau wines are famous for their longevity. In fact, many believe that a top Raveneau Chablis doesn’t hit its stride until it’s at least 8 to 10 years old. At this time, the wines not only acquire even greater richness, but layer upon layer of previously hidden flavors are revealed.
Along with René and Vincent Dauvissat, Raveneau pioneered the use of Côte d’Or winemaking in Chablis, including barrel fermentation and extended lees contact.

This is even more elegant and more refined still with its strikingly layered nose that once again is cool, pure and airy with its floral-suffused nose that possesses a plethora of classic Chablis scents along with discreet wood nuances. There is an absolutely gorgeous mouth feel to the medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the explosively long, saline and impeccably well-balanced finale. 2014 is potentially a genuinely great vintage for the Raveneau Montée de Tonnerre, which as fans of this wine will immediately understand, is really saying something.

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru has a not dissimilar nose to the Blanchots at the moment with limestone, citrus lemon and flint aromas are beautifully defined and focused. Every swirl of the glass and it seems to become more and more intense. The palate is fresh and tensile, just a hint of sour lemon on the entry, very good depth, but perhaps not quite achieving Blanchots’ penetration and sophistication on the finish at the moment.
