This too offers dazzling aromatic purity but is a good deal less expressive at the moment than the Blanchot as the classic young Valmur austerity is present in spades with steely, intense, focused and detailed green fruit that is cool, reserved, indeed even backward. The flavors are also quite understated and seem to be extracted directly from liquid rock as the minerality this displays is remarkable and there is a very different tactile sense in the mouth with simply tremendous buffering extract and staggering length. As good a young Raveneau Valmur as I can ever remember having and everything is in place for a long stay in the cellar. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Oct01,2004.

Raveneau’s 2002 Chablis Valmur is magnificent. Loads of earth tones, apples, flint, and white peaches are found in its boisterous aromatics. My notes read “an essence of perfectly ripened Chablis grape skins”. Seashells, minerals, flint, copious spices, pears, and apples are intertwined in its complex core of fruit. This full-bodied wine wows the taster with its concentration, depth, awesomely supple texture, as well as by its huge length. Pierre Rovani, The Wine Advocate Feb 2004

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
