2002 Domaine Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru "Montée de Tonnerre"

SKU #1071268 94 points Burghound

Outer quote mark To be sure, there is still excellent freshness to the gorgeously complex nose with its aromas of dried white flowers, citrus, mineral reduction and sea breeze wisps. The equally complex and exuberantly delicious middle weight flavors possess a caressing and sophisticated mouth feel while delivering outstanding length on the beautifully long and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is just terrific and given that it is just now knocking on the door of its full maturity it will have no trouble holding for years to come. In sum this is a knock-out.

93 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Musky aromas of chicken broth, lime and crushed stone; quite austere and slow to open. Then less fruity but more important on the palate, with bracing flavors of lemon and apple and an impression of minerality I can only describe as creamy. A very rich, dense wine with a strength of material that belies the normal-for-Raveneau yield of about 50 hectoliters per hectare. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2004)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Raveneau’s 2002 Chablis Montée de Tonerre was superb with the Peekytoe crab. Smoke, minerals and citrus peel all flowed from this superbly focused, taut wine. It will be fascinating to see how the wine evolves but it was beautiful and so promising on this night. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2007)

90-91 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Slate, chalk, and ripe pears can be discerned in the aromatic profile of the 2002 Chablis Montee de Tonnerre. Fleshy, supple and packed with creamed nuts, candied citrus fruits, and flint, this is a medium-bodied wine with outstanding depth as well as a sensual, velvety texture. (PR) Inner quote mark (2/2004)
