Domaine François Raveneau Valmur Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2011

$355

...Green tea, musky narcissus, gentian, chalk and oyster liqueur suffuse a palate generously juicy with fresh grapefruit and lemon, leading to a finish at once soothing and stimulating not to mention utterly intriguing and compelling of the next sip. Look for yet more impressive performances from this beauty between now and 2022. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Great poise. Very defined. Like a lot of 11’s, really clear and precise. Lemon oil, Stone, lean, steely fruit. Plush at The end of the midpalate. Very Raveneau and really valmur. Great stuff

From the Willi’s Wine Bar list. Light straw gold. Heavy, more weight and depth when compared with the Meursault Exudes young Chablis with sea breeze and salinity, honeysuckle, wet clay and white flowers in the nose. Rich and heavy in the mouth. Shows power and complexity with air. Needs time. But this is pretty good juice.

Peu expressif dans le premier 40-45 minutes. Aurait bénéficié d’un carafage plus long. A gagné en puissance et en rondeur avec la température ambiante. Se mariait bien avec les huîtres.

Very bright and white on the nose with oyster shells, slate and a lot of lift. Very precise and medium bodied. Lots of focus and intensity. Lots of lemon citrus and a limpid, oily steeliness. Very 11. Great now, and certainly life ahead but, I️ doubt one for the ages.

Very bright and fresh. Good fruit, lovely and balanced. A bit young but not one for the ages.
