Lot #229. François Raveneau Chablis Forêt 2002

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 NM.
"Nobody anticipated how well the 2002 Chablis La Forêt 1er Cru from Raveneau would show. At 16 years of age, it has a gorgeous bouquet with scents of lemon curd, white chocolate and vanilla, which makes it read more exotic than it actually is; these are fleeting glimpses amongst riveting crushed flint scents. The palate is exceptionally well balanced, delivering incredible drive and penetration, and yet the overriding impression is one of effortless grace. It is almost understated on the finish but beguiling in terms of persistence. It would be impressive for a grand cru, let alone what I feel is a premier cru that is under-appreciated by cognoscenti. What matters lies in the glass, and this delivers – big time." Vinous, Feb 2019
Provenance: The Ormeau Cellar
Notes: Very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $225
