The wines of Raveneau are distinctive, a perfect expression of Chablis. Raveneau makes pure, age-worthy, terroir-driven wines that are capable of matching, or even topping, the best sites on the Côte de Beaune in complexity, texture, and longevity. Within their extraordinary portfolio of Premier and Grand Cru vineyards is a small section of Les Clos. It is far and away the finest vineyard in Chablis and Reaveneau’s bottlings are considered the very best there is. Les Clos is the largest of the seven Grand Crus of Chablis and by most accounts the best, yielding tactile wines of astonishing complexity, combining flinty, iodiney minerality, brisk citrus and stone fruit notes, flowers and herbs, and crushed stone. Harvesting is done manually, and picking is generally done early to retain natural acidity and freshness. The juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks then matured for 18 months before bottling in large oak feuilletes with an average age of 7-8 years. It is no exaggeration to say that the finest wines from this great site combine some of the best traits of Montrachet and Corton-Charlemagne. At its best, Chablis Les Clos offers great breed and elegance, and twenty years or more of positive evolution in the bottle. This retrospective tasting of one of the great domaines of Burgundy will be an opportunity that you will not want to miss!
