Lavantureux Chablis: Petit and Grand

2-Bottle Pack

Lavantureux Chablis: Petit and Grand 2-Bottle Pack - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

The Lavantureux family has been one of the most exciting properties in our portfolio to watch over the past several years. Since the arrival of  founder Roland’s two sons, Arnaud and David, we have witnessed the Domaine grow consistently, augmenting vineyard holdings while always moving toward more pure and complex expressions of Chablis.
     When Kermit first began buying from the Lavantureux with the 1978 vintage, Roland produced only Petit Chablis and Chablis. His Petit Chablis in particular became an instant staple for the value-driven refreshment it provided, and continues to provide—crisp, terroir-infused Chardonnay built for everyday enjoyment does not get much more satisfying than this. Over the decades and especially in the last few years, the Domaine has begun to work more prestigious parcels, including a plot within the grand cru Vaudésir. Vinified by the young and talented Arnaud, this cuvée shows the racy, mineral side Chablis is renowned for, with textured layers of flavor and the potential to develop in bottle over many years.
     With this two-bottle pack, get to the know the Lavantureux family through their most petit and grand cuvées. From the wine that first caught Kermit’s nose and made their reputation to their exciting recent projects, you’ll see why these Chablis masters are turning heads and whetting palates worldwide. —Anthony Lynch

About 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.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:

1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
