Interesting Facts

Chablis Premier Cru "Vaillons" - beautiful, powerful, fresh wine with characteristic notes of citrus and minerals. Chardonnay grapes used for wine grows in the vineyard "Vaillons". It is the largest vineyard in the class Premiers Crus Chablis, located in a valley to the south-west of the city. Here, on the west bank of the River Serein, south-eastern exposure and high soil created excellent terroir, which has found its embodiment in this magnificent wine. Chalky soil with clay deposits - is the result of the presence of an ancient sea that covered northern France centuries ago. Tiny marine fossils, remaining after the withdrawal of water, contribute to the high proportion of limestone in the soil. Because of this, the taste and aroma of wine felt characteristic marine notes. They give the wine a personality, style and appeal, but when you consider that the potential for storing wine reaches 8-10 years, then eventually it will gain even greater wealth of aromas and complex mineral taste.
Harvest to create Chablis "Vayon" assembled by hand, and unlike 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.
Domain territory of 7.5 hectares, which include four premier cru - Montee de Tonnerre, Butteaux, Les Vaillons and Chapelot and three grand cru - Blanchot, Valmur and Les Clos. 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.
