Everything that was present in barrel made it into bottle. Aromatically discreet, backward and reserved yet there is an evident minerality that defines and characterizes this wine from start to finish and though this is ripe, the nose displays classic Chablis aromas of jaw dropping purity. The flavors are extremely powerful, precise, focused and tight with incredible depth and the extract both stains and coats the palate before the finish explodes in the mouth and simply goes on and on. This is knockout quality juice and I noticed that my notes contain the word wow! several times when I tasted this in Raveneau's cellar. A great, great effort and one of the top 5 wines of the vintage blessed with incredible cellar potential. Don't miss it! Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct01,2004.

Raveneau’s 2002 Chablis Les Clos is off the charts. Limestone, chalk, spices, white peaches, and minerals can be made out in its aromatics (these are less expressive than Raveneau’s other 2002s, typical for a young Les Clos). A powerful, full-bodied effort, it reveals a personality of awe-inspiring intensity, depth, and concentration. Pure, dense, muscular, exceptionally well-balanced, this brilliant wine boats a complex flavor profile of salty pears, earth, flint, and hints of candied lemons. Wow!

Projected maturity: 2008-2020.||“2002 was the kind of vintage we’d love to see every year, it has excellent balance and loads of flesh,” said Bernard Raveneau. Harvest for the Raveneaus began the last week of September, and the grapes were “healthy, with between 4 and 4.5 grams of acidity (per liter), and ripe, there was no need to chaptalize.” The estate’s wines will be bottled in April and May, 2004.||I have never tasted a line-up of Chablis with the sensual textures and stunning terroir-driven flavor profiles exhibited by Domaine Raveneau’s 2002s. These are magnificent wines that I would do almost anything to own, age, and drink... Bravo! Wine Advocate.February, 2004
