Raveneau's 2007 Chablis Les Clos is less severe intractably dense or obdurately stony than most of the vintage's representations of this great site being at once electrically energized and practically ethereal in its high-toned expressions of bitter-sweet floral and pit fruit distillates citrus zest white truffle quarry dust and ocean breezes. Luscious grapefruit and white peach seem to be mingled with a sea water reduction on the palate leading to a finish that tugs relentlessly at the salivary glands and practically seems to suck blood from your gums all the while displaying buoyancy that defies gravity. This is magical. If lucky enough to acquire multiple bottles I would plan to stretch out the experience of them over at least a dozen years.-David Schildknecht

Compelling high-pitched nose combines powdered stone lemon peel white pepper violet ginger and white truffle. Even more vibrant and precise than the Valmur if that's possible with incredible energy to its citrus peel and crushed rock flavors. Finishes with extraordinary clarity and finesse. A classic in the making.

An equally elegant but ever-so-slightly more complex nose that is also ripe pure and airy complements perfectly the rich supple and beautifully intense palate staining and mouth coating broad-shouldered flavors brimming with intensity and oyster shell nuances on the penetrating delineated austere and gorgeously precise finish. The underlying sense of tension here is palpable and this too has so much dry extract that it will require the better part of a decade to fully mature. A classic Les Clos.
