FRANCOIS RAVENEAU Montee de Tonnerre 1er cru, Chablis 2011

Montee de Tonnerre is typically bold, rich and complex with floral, fruity and intense mineral notes. Raveneau’s example is sourced from a 3.2 ha parcel of the 43 ha Montee de Tonnerre Premier Cru vineyard. This highly regarded vineyard has similar geological structure to the Grand Crus with south facing slopes and mineral rich Kimmeridgian soils high in limestone. Raveneau hand picks the grapes and uses only stainless steel for fermentation. Malolactic fermentation and maturation takes place in 7-8 year old oak barrels over 12-18 months.

Winery FRANCOIS RAVENEAU

Domaine Francois Raveneau is considered one of the very finest producers in Chablis crafting small quantities of wines with exceptional intensity, typicity and longevity predominantly from Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards. The domaine was established by François Raveneau in 1948 by consolidating his own vineyards with those owned by his wife’s family. During the 1960’s & 1970’s prices for vineyard land in Chablis slumped. François took advantage of this environment to expand the domaine’s vineyard holdings. Today the domaine comprises 9.29 ha including three sites within Chablis Grand Cru vineyards Les Clos, Blanchots and Valmur. Further land is owned within six Chablis Premier Cru vineyards including Montée de Tonnerre, Butteaux, Foret, Vaillons, Montmains and Chapelot. Now run by Francois’ sons Bernard and Jean-Marie, the domaine continues to uphold its stellar reputation for exceptional quality and consistency. The wines are fermented in stainless steel and subsequently matured in old oak barrels for twelve to eighteen months.
