Lot #282. François Raveneau Chablis Les Clos 1997

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 93-95 RP.
"Raveneau's 1997 Chablis Les Clos is undoubtedly grand vin. It offers a plethora of nuanced aromas, including lemons, minerals, flint, clay, and flowers. On the palate, this expansive, powerful, and mouth-coating wine exhibits extraordinary purity to its liquid mineral-dominated flavors. It possesses mind-boggling focus and length. Wines from Les Clos, considered by many to be Chablis' finest vineyard, have a tendency to gain power and body with cellaring. I predict that this presently lace-like yet extremely flavorful and expressive effort will blossom into a wine of considerable depth and richness." Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate, Jun 1999
Provenance: The Yekaterina Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,200
