Description

Domaine Roland Lavantureux Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru 2021 is a wine for lovers of elegant Chablis. Lavantureux Chablis Fourchaume will be at its peak at 7 years of age.

Domaine Roland Lavantureux Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru 2021 and all wines are eligible for at least 5% off any six bottles. And 10% off any 12 bottles. Some wines will be at a more significant discount and not subject to further discounts.

Domaine Roland Lavantureux is a family Estate. Roland and Brigitte’s sons Arnaud and David control the Estate. The Estate is 20 hectares that is farmed lutte raisonnée (the reasonable struggle or ‘as organic as possible but we will spray if we have to’). There is also further holdings from another side of the family coming on board soon. I am new to the producer but am impressed by the richness of the wines they make while still holding that classic Chablisness. They are a winery to watch and wines to keep for the mid-long term.

Domaine Roland Lavantureux Chablis Fourchaume 1er Cru 2021 Wine Review

Jasper Morris
91 points
Paler yellow, a lighter nose than the Vieilles Vignes but perhaps with more elegance. This was previously vinified and partly aged in 50% wood which shows in the coconut and the more tannic finish, both of which should subsequently integrate. Drink from 2024-2028.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

Burgundy

The classic part of Burgundy known as the Cote D’Or (the slope of gold) is essentially one vineyard that is 60km long and maybe 5km at its widest. From this limestone ridge, some of the most complex, long-lived and aromatic wines produced from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Cistercian monks who owned the land codified the entire region, and so each small plot has a name.

Burgundy Wine Map

Chablis 

The Kimmeridgian soils that make Chablis taste like Chablis are evident in these wines. They have more definition of the region and more structure than a Petit Chablis. But without the fruit weight and intensity of the better sites. Great wines for drinking young or youngish.

Chardonnay

The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool-climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.

French Wine

The land that some many New World (not European) wine producers look to emulate. To generalise about French wine, I would say it is savoury, lighter-bodied wines. They are the definition of elegant, complex. There are many styles, though. And there is a French wine for every palate. They lead the world in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundy. Sparkling Wine in Champagne. Cabernet and Merlot in Bordeaux. Syrah(Shiraz) and Grenache in the Rhone Valley. Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Gris in Alsace. Sauvignon Blanc, and Chenin Blanc in the Loire Valley. Gamay in Beaujolais.

Wine

Wine is the result you get from fermented grape juice. There is proof of wine production dating back 8000 years ago. Fashions, innovations and many other factors have influenced the way wine has evolved over the years.

The wine grape is impressive. It contains everything you need to make grape wine except for the yeast, which lives on the outside of the skins.

Human inputs can influence the final product, including the viticulture (growing) choices. And the winemaker can shape the wine to a point too.

The best wines of the world often refer to terroir. Terroir is a French term that refers to all the climatic, geological and topographical influences on a specific piece of land. And it is true that neighbouring vineyards, grown identically, can taste noticeably different.

White Wine

It is interesting to know that you can make white wine from almost any grape. The colour comes from the skins, and if there is no contact, there is no colour. White wines tend to be delicate, perfumed, higher in acid and lower in alcohol. It seems for this and many other reasons, it is hard to make an incredibly impressive white wine. But those that have mastered the art are indeed some of the best winemakers in the world.

It is a falsehood to think that white wine does not age as well as red wine. But it is correct that white wine, as a rule, doesn’t age for as long.
