“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...

“From a parcel of younger vines, the 2016 Chablis 1er Cru Forêt offers up attractive aromas of lemon, green apple, oyster shell and spring flowers. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, glossy and pure, with racy acids, attractive purity and a delicately chalky finish. It’s one of the most elegantly open-knit wines in the Raveneau cellar.Drink 2018 – 2028.”
