Nestled within the sun-drenched slopes of Chablis, where Chardonnay reigns supreme, Domaine François Raveneau's 2018 Les Clos whispers secrets of ancient vines and mineral-rich soils. This Grand Cru masterpiece stands as a testament to generations of family passion, offering a pure expression of terroir that transcends time.

A Legacy Etched in Limestone:

Founded in 1948, Raveneau is revered for crafting some of Chablis' most sought-after wines. Today, brothers Bernard and Jean-Marie carry the torch, tending just eight hectares of precious Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards. With an average vine age of 30 years, these are living legacies rooted in Kimmeridgian clay and limestone, soils that imbue the wines with their signature minerality and finesse.

Unveiling the Essence of Les Clos:

The 2018 Les Clos unfurls its soul in a tapestry of aromas. Crisp green apple and pear mingle with hints of white flowers and wet stone, a whisper of honeyed richness adding depth. On the palate, vibrant acidity awakens the senses before yielding to a plush, elegant structure. Layers of citrus, oyster shell, and white peach emerge, woven together by a steely minerality that lingers long after the last drop.
