Lavantureux is one of the unsung heroes of Kermit Lynch's book. Well, not totally unsung, of course. Kermit sings his praises; he says, "they are staff favorites year after year," although he is, literally, talking his own book. Kermit's most famous Chablis producer is, of course, Raveneau. And some of Lavantureux wines can remind you a bit of Raveneau, with exotic notes and a richness that frames a Chablisienne core.

Brothers David and Arnaud Lavantureux are going to make their family domaine famous. At the moment they are under the radar but not for long. The new generation has taken over the family vineyards and reinvigorated the entire operation.

Professional Reviews

Decanter

D 92
"Cool, crisp and classic Chablis with the drive from flinty, steely underpinnings and bright, zesty lemon fruit acidity, balancing the ripe, succulent and juicy apple fruit on the palate. Maturation in old oak casks has added extra complexity with no discernible oak flavour. A fine AOP Chablis."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 93
"In this wine, chalky mineral tones extend a smoky, salty veil on crisp yellow plum and grapefruit flavors. Medium bodied but plump in fruit, this invigorating Chardonnay drinks nicely young but should maintain peak through 2027."
