The domaine was created in 1948, when François Raveneau consolidated his holdings with his wife's family's vineyard parcels. Though his father had spent years selling off prime parcels, François was doing his best to bring new ones back into the hands of the domaine. The reputation of this elusive and somewhat stoic vigneron spread quickly, as his style was easily recognizable as far superior to the growing trend of innocuous, somewhat uniform Chardonnay. Today, François' sons, Bernard and Jean-Marie, direct the domaine, yet stay true to their father's philosophy in both the vineyards and the cellar.

"A ripe, expressive and elegant is nose is now fully mature though the exotic fruit aromas this displayed in its youth are still present. There is really lovely richness to the succulent yet well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that offer fine minerality on the long and mouth coating finish. For my taste, this is now fully mature as there is no additional development upside to be had though it should drink well for at least another decade. Note that, like all of the Raveneau '01s, this is not cut from the cloth of classic Chablis as the light botrytis notes confer upon the nose and flavors a definite exoticism. Tasted thirce over the past 5 years recently with consistent results, (BH, 92 points)".
