The domaine was founded in 1948, when François Raveneau and his wife combined their families' vineyard holdings. He was the first of his family to bottle wines made from the grapes from his vineyards – prior to this the grapes had been sold off to other producers. Today the domaine has eight hectares (20 acres) of land spread across three grand cru and six premier cru sites in Chablis. It is run by François' sons: Bernard and Jean-Marie. Domaine François Raveneau has small plots in grand cru sites Blanchot, Les Clos and Valmur and premier cru sites Montée de Tonnerre, Les Vaillons, Butteaux, Chapelot, Montmains, and Forêt. Most of these sites are planted on southwest-facing valley slopes, which allow for maximum sun exposure and ripening. These vineyards are planted Kimmeridgian clay and limestone soils, which are typical of the region. The vines are on average 30 years old, with those in the Montée de Tonnerre Premier Cru having an average age of 50. The grapes are all harvested by hand and then fermented with indigenous yeasts. This is followed by malolactic fermentation in barrels, and then the wines are aged for an extended period of time. François Raveneau's wines see at least 12 months in oak but can spend as much as eight years in barrel or feuillette (a small barrel). Only a very small portion of these barrels are new oak, and the wines are fined and only occasionally filtered.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-04-03T16:25:14-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-25T19:25:01-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","NK2403","other_french wine","Other_Wine","producer_Domaine François Raveneau","Region_Burgundy","Source_Bestofwines0323","Type_White Wine","Varietal_Chardonnay"],"price":179899,"price_min":179899,"price_max":179899,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42870055665802,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2005 | Domaine François Raveneau | Chablis Montee de Tonnerre","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":179899,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/54_179941bc-c314-4976-9377-0442c4dfc931.jpg?v=1679786756"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/54_179941bc-c314-4976-9377-0442c4dfc931.jpg?v=1679786756","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2005 | Domaine François Raveneau | Chablis Montee de Tonnerre at CaskCartel.com","id":24473947930762,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/54_179941bc-c314-4976-9377-0442c4dfc931.jpg?v=1679786756"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/54_179941bc-c314-4976-9377-0442c4dfc931.jpg?v=1679786756","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eWhite Wine: 2005 | Domaine François Raveneau | Chablis Montee de Tonnerre\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Montée de Tonnerre is also outstanding in 2005, as it offers up a very minerally blend of lemon, grapefruit, apples, wet stones, and crystalline minerality.

      Reviews:

      • Burghound: A ripe and fully mature nose retains an appealing freshness on the mildly exotic dried white and yellow orchard fruit and floral scents that possess just enough Chablis character to be persuasive. There is good richness to the delicious, round and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that deliver solid if not truly special depth and persistence on the lightly mineral-inflected finale.
      • Wine Advocate: Raveneau's 2005 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre is beginning to drink beautifully as it approaches age 13, wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of lemon oil, mandarin, drawn butter, iodine, beeswax and dried white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and textural, with the mid-palate richness and generosity of a warm vintage but with a delineated, chalky finish that's faithful to the Montée de Tonnerre. This is a gourmand, fleshy vintage for Raveneau—though not to the extent of 2006 or 2003—but the wines are aging gracefully.
