PETIT CHABLIS 2019 BY ROLAND LAVANTUREUX
Petit Chablis 2019 by Roland Lavantureux is a well-crafted Burgundian Chardonnay. Feels just like coming home. It’s a reminder that so few white wines so consistently deliver everything this wine does: it’s enthralling, it has piercing minerality, texture, intensity… it’s the total package, even in this youthful phase of its life.
Roland Lavantureux is a relative newcomer to Chablis, having founded the winery in 1978 with a dream to make intense mineral driven Chablis that ranks among the best. One generation later, with his sons in charge, his dream is taking shape.
What is interesting is that while they make Grand crus, they are often cited for their incredible Petit Chablis – which is said to be one of the greatest deals in Chablis.
This thirst-quenching wine comes from three hectares of vines, many of which are perched immediately above the hillside that holds all seven Grand Crus. Full of tension, pulverized chalk minerality, and beautifully broad layers normally found in wines double the price, this is a jaw-dropping achievement.

TASTING NOTE / Their most humble cuvée, Petit Chablis, remains the domaine’s benchmark for value and typicity. With a delectable combination of fresh fruit and oyster-shell aromatics, a texture on the palate that is both suave and linear, and a finish as mouthwatering as one demands from cool-climate Chardonnay from limestone soils, this Petit remains one of the grandest bargains in the region.
