CHABLIS 1er CRU
Appelation Chablis Premier Cru Controllée
Lavantureux Fréres is a family-run winery with twenty hectares of vineyards in the small village of Lignorelles. The main principle that is followed is 'Viticulture Intégrée' in the vineyards: no weeding and no pesticides, only natural soil cover or ploughing. In the cellar, an attempt is made to accompany the wine, not guide it. Thermoregulation is strictly used to conduct the vinification so as to obtain all the finesse and complexity of the fruit. Maturation is 10-12 months and takes place 50% in stainless steel tanks and 50% in oak barrels (new or up to 5 years old). Ageing in barriques gives the wines complexity and greater depth. Blending with the tank part helps to find the best balance for each cuvée every year. Harvest after harvest, brothers Arnaud and David Lavantureux consolidate their Domaine among the most interesting and reliable names in Chablis, producing wines that rival the best. A new wine from the Lavantureux stable, Premier Cru Beauroy is a round, broad expression of Chablis from three south-facing plots. The plots of this Chablis are in fact located in the communes of Lignorelles, Ligny le Chatel and Beine. Different territories for a unique Chablis. Thanks to the particular exposure, Beauroy expresses exotic and ripe fruit notes for an opulent Chablis. The nose is fine, subtle and develops notes of ripe fruit. In the mouth, the fruit takes over and then gradually gives way to a fine structure, giving harmony and balance to the wine. This wine can perfectly accompany main courses such as veal, white meats and fish characterised by a certain fattiness (salmon and tuna). To be drunk over the next eight to ten years.
