Best Chablis

Welcome to the classification of the best wines of Chablis, the great Burgundy appellation. You will find the wines with the highest ratings, the prestigious estates as well as some tasting notes on these wines.


THE FAMOUS BURGUNDY APPELLATION: CHABLIS

The Chablis vineyard is located very close to Auxerre. It runs along the Serein, a small river that runs along the Yonne department.

The Chablis vineyard has existed since Roman times. The great wines of this AOC are known to be dry, excellent, at the head of the great wines of Burgundy, with an exceptional grape variety, Chardonnay.

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “LES CLOS” 2002

Note Robert Parker: 98-100/100

Limestone, chalk, spices, white peaches and minerals can be in its aromatic compounds. A beautiful, full-bodied effort that reveals an impressive personality, depth and concentration. Pure, dense, muscular, exceptionally well balanced wine. This brilliant liner with its many complex flavours: salty pears, earth, flint and candied lemon notes. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2020.

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “LES CLOS” 2010

Note Robert Parker: 97+/100

All the best elements of the vintage are present in this superb Chablis. Domaine Raveneau, visionary, one more struck: layers of fruit through the palate, captivating all the senses, intellectual, hedonistic and everything else. The Clos 2010 shows a great balance and class from beginning to end. A deep wine to enjoy over the next few decades, although they should not be touched until they are ten years old. A bottle of magic wine. At maturity: 2020+.

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “LES CLOS” 2007

Note Robert Parker: 97-98/100

Tones of distillate, flowers and very sweet fruits, a zest of citrus fruits, white truffle, quarry dust, and ocean breezes. There are also fruits: grapefruit and white peach seem to be mixed with seawater in the mouth, leading to a finish that continuously pulls the salivary glands and seems to practically suck the blood from your gums, while displaying buoyancy that defies gravity. It’s magical.

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “LES CLOS” 2014

Note Robert Parker: 97/100

A much more expressive bouquet than the 2015, with a beautiful orange blossom and smoky scents on the nose. The mouth is very well balanced and very salty. This great vintage is so seductive and harmonious that it seems to blossom. It provides a fabulous intensity on the final. While “Valmur” is the favorite in 2015, this “Les Clos” could be the favorite in 2014, thanks to its sense of exhaustiveness. But as I mentioned in my remarks last year, patience will be essential for those seeking to attend this Chablis at its peak. To be enjoyed between 2020 and 2050.

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “BLANCHOTS” 2014

Note Robert Parker: 97/100

The Chablis Grand Cru 2014 “Blanchots” is a great competitor, for the other wines of Domaine Raveneau, in this great year for Chablis. It is very well defined, with a bouquet influenced by notes of sea air, which offers a captivating intensity. It’s a Chablis that looks straight at you. The palate is exquisitely balanced, with an acidity that can be compared to a razor. He is lively and playful, with a wonderful sense of harmony and balance towards the finish. It is sophisticated and elegant, but it will take 4 to 6 years for it to be perfectly adjusted at the throat. To be enjoyed between 2020 and 2050.

  • DOMAINE RENÉ ET VINCENT DAUVISSAT CHABLIS “LES PREUSES” 2007

Note Robert Parker: 97/100

Amazing! Amazing! Mysterious notes of scallops, a sweet wine, with salty flavours and a delightful combination of richness and texture. Smooth and delicate, a real refreshment such as you won’t often see. Notes of fresh lime, distilled herbal essence, orange oil, iris and honey on the nose. An extremely elegant and dynamic mid-palate. A flat finish. To be enjoyed from now until 2024.

Tasting Date: December 22, 2009 by David Schildknecht

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “VALMUR” 2002

Note Robert Parker: 96-98/100

This Raveneau is magnificent. Tones from the ground, notes of apples, flint and white peaches, which are found in dull aromas. An essence of perfectly ripe Chablis grape skins. Shells, minerals, flint, abundant spices, pears and apples are intertwined in its complex fruit core. This full-bodied wine makes the taster vibrate with its concentration, depth, extremely supple texture, and long finish. Drink now until 2020.

Tasting Date: February 27, 2004 by Pierre Rovani

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “LES CLOS” 2008

Note Robert Parker: 96-97+/100

The minute your nose stops on a glass of Chablis Les Clos 2008 from Raveneau, you recognize that this wine inhabits its own world, which represents a distinct class in the current collection. The mineral elements; the maturity of the northern orchard fruits; citrus fruits in the mouth; and the sweet and sour floral profusion, found in other exceptional representatives of its vintage, are here exponentially high. Richly textured but persistent, refreshing; clearly dense but vibrant; the intensity of the reverberant finish of this Clos must be measured on the Richter scale. He grabs, comes back and doesn’t let go. Drink it now.

  • DOMAINE RENÉ ET VINCENT DAUVISSAT “LES CLOS” 2008

Note Robert Parker: 96-97/100

I tasted Dauvissat’s Chablis Les Clos 2008 assembled from the tank, very shortly before bottling, where it demonstrated a remarkably dense but animated layer of citrus fruits, quince, white peaches and tremendously concentrated chalk, oysters and iodine mineralization. The bitterness of the coconuts, the quinine and the bitterness of the fruit wells contribute to prolong a cleaning finish, of adhesive gum, electrically charged, practically pickling, which announces at least 15 years of glory, provided that premature oxidation does not reduce it, which no one can predict and the history of this vintage makes it improbable. To be enjoyed now until 2023+.

  • DOMAINE RAVENEAU CHABLIS “LES CLOS” 2006

Note Robert Parker: 96-97/100

Les Chablis de Raveneau 2006 “Les Clos” offers a mysterious profusion of floral notes, nobly fungal and mineral aromas. The intensity of the tactile mineral pinch phenolic compounds – chalk, tangerine and grapefruit zest, white pepper – are embedded in a matrix of white peaches and citrus fruits, still voluptuously rich, fresh, so vivid that I was almost waiting to find the dough in the bottom of my glass. In its elegant shimmering interplay of mineral dimensions and sparkling fruits, with floral, sweet and sour scents, and nut oils. Drink it now.

Of course, this classification is not universal and everyone is free to have their own opinion on the different wines and therefore their own classification. Nevertheless, we think that this classification can guide you and we hope to have convinced you for a tasting of one of the Chablis mentioned above.
