Chablis Montmains, Domaine Raveneau 2013
Here the expressive nose mixes primarily floral notes with hints of citrus, pear, sea breeze and quinine along with a nuance of exotic fruit. There is a relatively soft, indeed even tender mouth feel to the lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that display a touch of salinity on the delicious if slightly warm finish. This too should be approachable young if desired.

Savory and mineral notes dominate over fruit in the 2013 Chablis Montmains. Slate, crushed rocks, oyster shells and sage are some of the many notes that inform this crystalline, precise Chablis. There is lovely density in the glass, yet the Montmains looks like a relatively early drinking wine by Raveneau standards.
