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.

Fermented in stainless steel
60% aged in 3 to 5 year old barrels and 40% in stainless steel

Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Jasper Morris' Inside Burgundy:
"Not in bottle but the blend is done. There is still a light reduction on the nose. Excellent steely tension, a lively finish with real grip. All in white fruit, somewhat saline but not iodine. Drink from 2025-2028." (July 2023)

89 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2022 Chablis Vielles Vignes, which comes from 55-year-old vines, is much more austere on the nose than the regular cuvée, leaving me wishing there was more fruit. Closed up for the day? The palate is balanced and more expressive, with touches of Golden Delicious and red apple, quite spicy towards the finish. I feel that the aromatics need a few months to open, so I keep the faith." - Neal Martin (Sept 2023)
