2017 Domaine François Raveneau Chablis ‘Blanchot’ Grand 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.

93 Points Allen Meadows
An elegant, pure and airy array is comprised by notes of white flowers, pear, green apple and plenty of classic Chablis elements. The clean, precise and impressively intense middle weight flavors are like rolling small rocks around in the mouth, all wrapped in a sneaky long finish that is also very, very saline. This will require at least 5+ years of cellaring and reward 10+.

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot is showing brilliantly, delivering a complex bouquet of honeysuckle, smoke, mandarin and wheat toast. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, layered and satiny-textured, with striking concentration, lively acids and a pure, precise finish. From the domaine’s oldest parcel—planted in 1936—this is a powerful, ineffably complete Blanchot that will be well worth following for three decades..
