Domaine Lavantureux has been the Lavantureux family's estate for many generations. Today, the Lavantureux brothers - David and Arnaud - perpetuate the family tradition. The Chablis parcels are located in the communes of Lignorelles, Ligny le Chatel and Beine, all with different terroirs. The follow the principles of "viticulture intégrée" which means minimum intervention, no weeding or pesticides etc.
The 13 hectares of Chablis vines are between 25 and 30 years of age; yields and temperatures are controlled to bring out all the aromas and to keep the wine's fresh and mineral characteristics. The medium body is partly a result of leaving the wine on its lees (effectively the dead yeast) for 6 months before bottling.

"Stony, I can imagine seashells – salty. Salty on the palate too. And then creamy in texture. Unusual and attractive wine but not for fruit lovers."
