2017 Chablis Grand Cru “Bougros”

Domaine Roland Lavantureux

In late October, Chablis hosted its first-ever marathon. David Lavantureux was among the runners, as were some of his clients, whose trunks-full of wine were hard-earned, to say the least. The marathon ended with a cruel climb in the northern part of the grands crus, arriving at the white limestone summit of Bougros before the descent to the finish line. David had barely made it home before his clients limped their way into the cuverie. Feigning exhaustion, they declared, “Bougros goes down easier than we go up!” It doesn’t take an athlete to agree that Lavantureux’s fullest-bodied grand cru, both youthful and rich, is easy to savor, no matter the effort that preceded its arrival at table.

About Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.
