2015 Domaine François Raveneau Chablis ‘Valmur’ Grand Cru

$789.00

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

93 Points Allen Meadows
The fresh and expressive nose offers up notes of strong mineral reduction, green fruit, lemon-lime, tidal pool and oyster shell hints. The full-bodied, rich and muscular big-bodied flavors are succulent and wonderfully textured while delivering outstanding length on the stony, focused and explosive finish. As Raveneau’s Valmur almost always is, this is a powerful and serious wine that will require at least 4 to 5 years of cellaring and reward at least a decade’s worth.

94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has a very backward nose, one of the most laconic of Raveneau’s 2015s at the moment. The palate is powerful and intense with a citric entry, quite tensile in the mouth and regaining its composure to deliver a very harmonious orange zest and white peach-tinged second half that feels very assured. This Valmur is packed with potential. Superb.
