2015 Domaine François Raveneau Chablis ‘Mont Mains’ 1er Cru

$650.00

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.

Description

92+ Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chablis 1er Cru Montmain, which was touched by hail, offers a sense of depth and power on the nose. This is clearly more backward than its peers but very well defined. The palate is rounded and slightly honeyed on the entry with a fine thread of acidity. It builds in the mouth but there is something broody about this Montmains which makes it beguiling. Give this two or three years at least because instinct tells me it will repay those with the nous to cellar this Chablis away.

90 Points Allen Meadows
There is a bit more Chablis typicity to the floral, citrus and sea breeze-scented nose trimmed in a touch of mineral reduction. The vibrant and nicely concentrated flavors possess more evident refinement if perhaps not quite the same power while delivering fine length on the balanced finish.
