Roland Lavantureux 2020 Chablis Vieilles Vignes 1.5L
From their sixty-year-old vines, brothers Arnaud and David Lavantureux have captured the boiled-down essence of Kimmeridgian limestone in this stunning bottling. Everything about this cuvée, from the delicately briny scent of slick oyster shells to the concentrated, pristinely focused sensation on the palate, is a demonstration of why this domaine has become one of Chablis’ very best. That they can channel razor-sharp freshness with such silky-fine touch is a remarkable—and positively mouthwatering—feat.
