Rare magnums of Grand Cru Chablis!


Rare magnums of Grand Cru Chablis!
2016 Roland Lavantureaux Chablis Vaudesir...$179.99 / Magnum
Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir:
• Mostly fermented in barrels and a small part in stainless steel
• 85% of wine is aged in barrels that are 3 to 5 years old and 15% of the wine is aged in new oak
With a sharp eye, natural instinct, and solid Burgundian pragmatism, Roland Lavantureux made a name for himself crafting no-nonsense Chablis that has come to be one of the most reliable of the old reliables here at Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant.
The region is best known for its Kimmeridgian soils, a highly prized terroir of limestone and clay infused with tiny, fossilized oysters. The intensely chalky sea-shell minerality lends deep complexity to whites, making this region an ideal home for the Chardonnay grape.
