92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate / The Raveneaus’ 2011 Chablis Blanchots mingles bittersweet floral perfume, salt- and iodine-tinged crustacean shell reduction, and piquant huckleberry in a bright, juicy matrix of grapefruit and lemon. Subtly oily in texture yet buoyant, this finishes with glowing intensity and outright refreshment. Plan to follow it through at least 2022. Isabelle Raveneau suggests that, especially in this vintage, the grand crus display not just the dividend in richness that would generally be expected, but also an advantage in energy, quality of acids, and ultimately age-worthiness. Lucky those who will be in a position to test that hypothesis over the coming decade!

The Story

The Brothers Raveneau are a dream team. They carry the family torch with pride, yet with a reserve, pragmatism, and humility that is more likely found among true farmers than the artists they are. There is no set division of labor between the brothers, just “all hands on deck,” as each one brings his own expertise to the mix. Jean-Marie attended the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, and has been with the domaine since 1978. In 1995 when François retired, Bernard finally joined his brother at the domaine after years of working for a négociant.

Together, they farm nearly eight hectares of land, including three grand cru vineyards (Blanchot, Les Clos, and Valmur) and six premier crus (Montée de Tonnerre, Les Vaillons, Butteaux, Chapelot, Mont-Mains, and Forêt).  In a cool climate like Chablis, vines find their strength in the rich clay and chalky limestone of the Kimmeridgian chain.
