About the Domaine:
Roland Lavantureux founded the domaine in 1978 in the town of Lignorelles, about four miles northwest of Chablis. Today, his two sons have taken over the Domaine: Arnaud is in charge of the vineyards and cellar, while David takes the lead in marketing and sales. In addition to making a stunning Chablis, the Lavantureux family also bottles a mouth-watering Petit Chablis, which, depending on the vintage, can easily rival their more highly pedigreed bottling—only proving the unwavering consistency of the Lavantureux family that has kept our relationship with them so strong for over thirty-five years.
The Lavantureux wines display show-stopping nerve, to be enjoyed as easily before dinner as they are with a piece of grilled fish or oysters-on-the-half-shell. These wines drink as honestly as the people who make them; they are staff favorites year after year.
About this Wine:
From their sixty-year-old vines, brothers Arnaud and David Lavantureux have captured the boiled-down essence of Kimmeridgian limestone in this stunning bottling. Everything about this cuvée, from the delicately briny scent of slick oyster shells to the concentrated, pristinely focused sensation on the palate, is a demonstration of why this domaine has become one of Chablis’ very best. That they can channel razor-sharp freshness with such silky-fine touch is a remarkable—and positively mouthwatering—feat.

Ratings & Reviews
"Pale yellow, this has a classic bouquet without the simplistic overt fruit of many 2021s and showing instead the classic framework of Chablis. Racy, juicy, even some yellow fruit, excellent acid balance and persistent. Drink from 2024-2027."
