"A Virtually Perfect Vintage"
2005 Raveneau Chablis
1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre
Lowest Price in the Nation

"This is a striking 1er and one to buy as it easily delivers Grand Cru quality." -Allen Meadows

This is an offer that we'll keep very short.

The combination of the Burghound note above, the sharp pricing, a great Raveneau vintage that's just entering its drinking window and, this being Raveneau, the modest size of the parcel ensures a quick sell out.

If you're receiving this email, you're already aware of Raveneau's magic touch. Quantities are simply too small to offer beyond our loyal Raveneau buyers.

In 2005, Raveneau took the raw materials of what he calls "a virtually perfect vintage" and created an epic, overachieving 1er Cru. As in 2002, Raveneau managed to capitalize on the ripeness and concentration of the vintage while maintaining the nervy backbone of classic Chablis.

When it comes to the holy trinity of grandeur, complexity and value, Montée de Tonnerre is the star of Raveneau's 2005 line-up. As Meadows points out, Montée de Tonnerre is a 1er Cru that can rival many a Grand Cru. In the best years MdT wines showcase epic scale and an ability to deliver power with finesse. The best comparison is to the monument Grand Cru, Les Clos.

Raveneau's 05 MdT is a masterpiece of clarity, precision and power. It's as simple as that.
