ADD

The sleepy village of Chablis, about midway between Beaune and Paris, possesses the cool continental climate and fossil-strewn limestone soils that imbue Chardonnay with unique traits not found even in other iterations from the vine’s Burgundian homeland. Within the Chablis growing zone, authorities have delimited the top sites: generally, these are sunny, south-facing slopes and give the most powerful wines. Sites conducive to lighter, earlier-drinking styles take the Petit Chablis designation. For the Lavantureux family, whose mouthwatering wines we have imported for over thirty years, the line is not so clear. An imaginary boundary through the vines divides their Chablis from their Petit Chablis, meaning this humble bottling has the character of a more pedigreed appellation. “Petit” or not, this wine provides bracing refreshment while bearing the mark of its terroir: notes of lime, seashells, white flowers, and an energizing acidity for your apéritif or a shellfish feast.–Anthony Lynch
