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.
