Roland Lavantureux started bottling wine in the 70s in Lignorelles, on the family estate. Up to that time his predecessors had delivered the wines to the Paris market in the 132-litre feuilette barrels typical of the region. In the last 40 years, the 5 hectares of family vineyards have expanded to 20 hectares, with old Chardonnay plots in the prestigious vineyards of the area. The most important of them is Vauprin, which is located on the southern slope of the village and is also one of the highest points in the wine region. Unusually, they age all their wines, including this one, in barrels.
2020 was the earliest vintage ever and also the first organically cultivated vintage at the Lavantureux family. Still, the new vintage of Vauprin gives us everything one is looking for from a Chablis, or even more so. The citrusy, taut palate is complemented by exceptionally clean woody notes and generous concentration. It’s an excellent combination of the winemaker and the region.
“We have an unusual style, we use barrels for ageing, which is not a common practice in Chablis. With this, we balance out the strong local character of the chiselled, taut-structured wines with the richness and depth given by the barrels. In this way, density and salty tension appear simultaneously on the palate." – Arnaud Lavantureux.
