Domaine François Raveneau Forêt Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2011

$215

Raveneau's 2011 Chablis Foret comes across as relatively easygoing in this vintage. Still, there is a pretty sense of inner minerality that gives the wine its crystalline precision... texturally quite attractive. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Celery stalk, limestone, touch of oak, amazing, and this in an off vintage.

Tasting Raveneau with @Anthony Lynch at arlequin makes for a good night! This 2011 foret was my favorite bottle. While all were great, this one was especially aromatic and complex, with fresh but savory notes of cheese rind, pink peppercorn, a really cool dried kaffir lime leaf note, stony minerals, plus green apple and lemon fruit. Classically structured and defined by acid, but there's so much more here!

Maybe I just don't get it, but there's a grittiness to the wine that doesn't quite come together for me.

More notes later. Sick. This started off with the Raveneau funk but then opened up into a beautiful, really juicy, mineral wine, but as goes at chez Raveneau a combo of deep terroir expression and deep Raveneau expression is always split down the middle. Gorgeous wine and it's just so Raveneau.

Right now it's lacking focus, lot of fat. Probably drank way too early but it was a bit disappointing.
