Interesting Facts

Blanchot - the most easterly of the seven climatic subterritory Chablis Grand Cru. It received its name because of its striking white soil ("blanc" - in French means "white"). Exposition Blanchot - slope facing south-east, so the grapes grown on it gets more of the morning sun, but at the same time less than the midday sun than other land Chablis, which leads to a slightly cooler temperatures. The soil is rich in limestone, it contains a small amount of blue clay, which imparts wines Blanchot mineral shade. The combination of the climate and soil attached style Blanchot mineral and citrus taste, by which it is easy to recognize and distinguish from other wines.

Harvested by hand, and in contrast to the vast majority of the remaining farms, very early, Francois noted that early grapes superior in quality late harvest grapes. The wine is fermented in steel tanks and aged in oak barrels (which is why critics point out that wine domain Francois Raveno more like the taste of the wine from the Cote d'Or, than their neighbors), the average age is 7-8 years old barriques. They wine is aged for about 18 months and then bottled.

There are many traditional wine-growing regions, which became famous thanks to the excellent wineries. Chablis region became famous mainly due Raveno. This domain is considered to be the undisputed leader of winemaking in this region. Founder François Raveno very long run its economy and being in old age, gave it to his sons, Bernard and Jean. Domain experts called the "king of Chablis" and his guilt, according to experts, best express Chardonnay.

In the vast majority of wineries Chablis region are equipped with the latest technology, can not be said about the winery Francois Raveno. The front door cellar Raveno - very little coming out onto the street. The few who were lucky enough to get to the tasting in the cellar Raveno had to bend in half, to go inside. In the cellars twilight reigns and dampness.

Wines Domaine Fransois Raveneau long ago established their reputation crystal clear, perfectly delineated quite mature and amazingly complex wine with a long finish that "too young" exude aromas of citrus and with maturity become even more rich and lush candy. The only drawback of these wines - they are available in extremely small quantities.
