White Burgundy Raveneau 2007 Chablis Grand Cru Clos

1 Bottle 75cl £515
  • Tasting note: An equally elegant but ever-so-slightly more complex nose that is also ripe, pure and airy complements perfectly the rich, supple and beautifully intense palate staining and mouth coating broad-shouldered flavors brimming with intensity and oyster shell nuances on the penetrating, delineated, austere and gorgeously precise finish. The underlying sense of tension here is palpable and this too has so much dry extract that it will require the better part of a decade to fully mature. A classic Les Clos.

White Burgundy Raveneau 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

1 Bottle 75cl £250
White Burgundy Raveneau 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Butteaux

4 Bottle 75cl £190
  • Tasting note: Wafting aromas of essence of pear, iodine and copious amounts of mineral reduction are also trimmed in just enough wood to mention. The succulent yet powerful broad-shouldered flavors possess excellent muscle and intensity on the super-saline, indeed this has an almost salty finish. Fine quality here and built-to-age as well.

    Producer note: Isabelle Raveneau commented that "we again suffered frost damage in 2017 like we did in 2016 but not in the same parcels. Moreover, once the spring was finished the weather largely turned in our favor and there was certainly much less disease pressure and particularly so in terms of mildew. The rest of the growing season was pretty much uneventful and we chose to begin picking on the 4th of September and brought in fruit that was much cleaner than what we harvested in 2016. Moreover, while volumes were by no means abundant, they were at least above those in 2016 though they were variable with some being almost normal and others, and particularly so in the grands crus, were not especially high. Overall I would put our total production as off by one-third. Potential alcohols were quite good at between 12 and 13% with solid if not high acidities. Both fermentations unfolded without incident as the musts were very clean. As to the style of the 2017s, they could be described as reasonably classic and certainly more so than either 2015 or 2016." I have always liked the Chapelot from Raveneau (rarely seen as the production is limited to 1,200 to 1,500 bottles) though because of the reduced quantities due to hail and frost, there will be none in 2015, 2016 or 2017. Note: the Raveneau 2016s, revisited below, were mostly bottled in April 2018. (Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, www.kermitlynch.com, CA, USA; John Armit Wines, www.armit.co.uk and Haynes, Hanson & Clark, www.hhandc.co.uk, both UK).
    Tasting note: There is a wisp of exotic fruit to the mineral reduction, quinine and lychee nut aromas. As is usually the case, the broad-shouldered and powerful flavors possess plenty of size, weight and mid-palate density thanks to the abundant level of dry extract that also coats the palate on the overtly powerful if slightly warm finish. This isn't refined, indeed it's borderline rustic but it should amply reward up to a decade of cellaring.
