Domaine Roland Lavantureux 1er Cru Vau de Vey Chablis 2019
Domaine Roland Lavantureux have been growing grapes in Chablis for generations, but it wasn’t until 1979 that they started bottling their own wine. The Premier Cru Vau de Vey was planted in the 1970s and facing east, is a slow-ripening site with the gentle morning sun providing a long growing season and wines of spectacular complexity. This is a stunning example of the vineyard - an energised wine full of quince, citrus pith and stoney minerality. Half off the wine sees a year in barrel, adding texture to balance this taut wine with racy acidity.
“A relatively young estate, Lavantureux is definitely a domaine to watch. Arnaud and David are now running things, with a recent 0.95ha acquisition in Vau de Vey. Farmed by hand, this is a delightful Premier Cru which emphasises the character of this steep, stony climat. Lovely density on the palate with an intriguing lime character, balanced by mineral, flinty notes and a touch of creamy oak adding more complexity. Subtle and nuanced.”
