Domaine F. Raveneau Chablis 2015
Stephen Tanzer 89-91
(picked a full week after the hailed-on sections): Pale, bright lemon-yellow. Very pure aromas of lemon, menthol and minerals. Deep, rich and ripe, with enveloping if slightly exotic grapefruit and lemon curd flavors. A distinctly easygoing wine with subtle lemon oil sweetness. This fruit, picked before the Petit Chablis, was a bit diluted by the heavy rain that fell with the hail, according to Isabelle Raveneau.

About Domaine Francois Raveneau
The domaine was created in 1948, when François Raveneau consolidated his holdings with his wife's family's vineyard parcels. Though his father had spent years selling off prime parcels, François was doing his best to bring new ones back into the hands of the domaine. The reputation of this elusive and somewhat stoic vigneron spread quickly, as his style was easily recognizable as far superior to the growing trend of innocuous, somewhat uniform Chardonnay. The domaine's production has always been miniscule, and Kermit fought in vain throughout the seventies to add these wines to his portfolio. As an ardent practitioner of natural wines, François was extremely skeptical about shipping overseas, fearing that the wines might suffer during the ocean voyage. Assured by friends that Kermit was very familiar with natural wines and only shipped in refrigerated containers, François finally agreed (see Adventures on the Wine Route). The relationship started with the 1979 vintage and has continued solidly ever since. Today, François' sons, Bernard and Jean-Marie, direct the domaine, yet stay true to their father's philosophy in both the vineyards and the cellar.
