“What explains the Raveneau magic? Yields here aren’t excessively high, but they’re not the region’s lowest. Fermentation at between 18 and 20 degrees centigrade in tank, followed by élevage on the lees in used barrels define the very elementary outlines of the winemaking process—a description that would equally apply to Vincent Dauvissat’s stylistically different wines. The devil is, presumably, in the details. And it’s a conundrum I’m content to ponder for the foreseeable future, as the Domaine Raveneau is undoubtedly the source of some of Chablis’s greatest wines—and its most dependably long-lived.”

About This Wine...

“The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur is a rich, exotic rendition of this great bottling, exhibiting aromas of honeyed peach, crisp apricot and sweet spices. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, powerful and layered, with a deep and ample mid-palate, concluding with a long, saline finish. It’s a textural, gourmand Valmur that I suspect may resemble the 2001 vintage when it reaches maturity. Drink 2020 – 2035.”

94+/100 Robert Parker 2018

 

“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.”
