Wine Advocate 92 points. The 1998 Guiraud is medium gold colored and has quite a toasty/nutty nose with praline and croissant notions over a core of peach preserves, oil skin and white truffle. Mature in the mouth, it sports appealing stone fruit and earthy layers with the richness coming through on the finish. LPB Jun 2018. #SAUTERNES
James Suckling ""A bright, dense white with lots of dried-lemon, pear and apple character. Some vanilla and cream. It's full-bodied and flavorful. Seriously structured."" (Barrel Score 94-95) #19
Really intense and powerful with great density and energy, showing sliced limes, green apples, stone and minerals. It’s full-bodied and very long. Extremely minerally with precision and brightness. Clear and transparent. Wow. 96-97 points James Suckling. #19
Wine Advocate 93 points. The pale lemon colored 2016 Clos Haut-Peyraguey reveals a veritable cornucopia of tropical notes—guava, mango and pineapple—with nuances of spiced pears, jasmine, fallen leaves and allspice plus a touch of acacia honey. The palate is elegantly styled with all those intense scents marrying beautifully into a perfumed restraint, finishing with a lively citrus lift. LPB Mar 2019.
Winery tasting note: The color is pale gold with reflections of emerald, a perfection of finesse and purity that flourishes over time, we find notes of menthol, liquorice against the backdrop of this iodized mineral very characteristic of the great Chablis wines. Drink it over the next five to ten years. "Somewhat unusually, here the nose is actually quite similar to that of the La Forêt but with slightly better layering. Otherwise there is terrific intensity to the firm, racy and overtly mineral-driven flavors that possess excellent size, weight and mid-palate density, all wrapped in a super-saline and beautifully well-balanced finale....
From the estate's 50 year old vines. A perfect balance of ripeness and minerality at an unbeatable price for the quality. A complex wine with excellent mineral structure permits it to maintain its typical dry mineral and white fruit aromas for a number of years. Pale gold color, shiny and luminous. A captivating Chablis, through a fruity vine peach, citrus fruit and tender brioche. We have worked closely with Cyril Testut for many years now. Quiet, considered and deeply passionate about his 13ha domaine, he is the proprietor of one of the real jewels of the Chablis region that sites in the top echelons of the Chablis hierarchy. His Chablis...
The JJ Vincent Pouilly-Fuisse Cuvee Marie Antoinette is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincents mother; Marie Antoinette Vincent. The wine is sourced from several parcels including young vines from the Chateau Fuisse vineyards of Le Clos, Les Brules and Le Combettes as well as several non-domaine yet family owned parcels throughout the appellation. Cuvee Marie Antoinette is created with a fresh, youthful profile in mind. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tank with only about 25% of the total blend seeing any time in oak. The resulting wine is pleasing, refreshing and crisp on the palate. Producer Chateau Fuisse has defined the...

A new wine in the Lavantureux stable, the premier cru Beauroy is a round, ample expression of Chablis from a south-facing parcel. Silky and suave on the palate, it finishes with a whisper of salinity. Drink it over the next eight years. —Anthony Lynch. WINERY NOTES: Beauroy is a south facing 1er Cru. This aspect allows it to receive more sunlight than any of our other vineyards. The wine is always rich and concentrated with ripe fruit flavors. We don't make it every year but the warm vintage presented us with great fruit from the site. In 2019 we kept more freshness and acidity in the wine. This has given a nice balance to the Beauroy and...

Jancis Robinson 18/20. Sweet spices, chalk and steel on the palate with delicious umami complexity on the mid-palate. Full and lengthy, and shows that Chablis can be taken as seriously as any top burgundy. Still very young, and will go on to even greater things. (RH) Drink 2022– 2032. Wine Advocate 93 points. The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros is showing nicely, unwinding in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, nutmeg, sweet orchard fruit and struck match that are deftly patinated by new oak. Medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, it's fleshy, open but precise, with tangy acids and a nicely defined, mouthwatering finish. This is a...
Jasper Morris 92-94. "Ripe , spicy nose, very typical of Bougros. There is a huge mouthful here with excellent tension, some peach notes, everything is there in the rich but balanced style of the vintage. And very long. Tasted Sept 2020." Now that the new generation has settled in at Domaine Lavantureux, we can barely keep track of the new developments, each one more exciting than the last. This bottling marks just their third release from Bougros, a grand cru with abundant sun exposure noted for its high proportion of clay. It stands out from their other wines for its lavish richness, pampering your palate with decadent, limestone-tinged...
Very classy on the nose with dried apple and hints of pineapple and lilac. Medium-to full-bodied with a creamy and crunchy mouth feel from the ripe fruit and the bright acidity. Drink now. 95 points JamesSuckling.com. Wine Advocate 92+. The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume is lovely, mingling aromas of citrus zest, nutmeg, fresh bread and struck match in an inviting mélange. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and incisive, it's a bright, youthfully tightly-wound wine with a flinty finish that should age with grace. WK Aug 2021. • Fermented in stainless steel • 40% of the wine is aged in barrels that are 3 to 6 years old, no new...
Decanter 95 points. A relatively young estate, Lavantureux is definitely a domaine to watch. Arnaud and David are now running things, with a recent 0.95ha acquisition in Vau de Vey. Farmed by hand, this is a delightful Premier Cru which emphasises the character of this steep, stony climat. Lovely density on the palate with an intriguing lime character, balanced by mineral, flinty notes and a touch of creamy oak adding more complexity. Subtle and nuanced. Drinking Window 2022 - 2027. Andy Howard MW. Wine Advocate 92 points. The 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Vau de Vey is a fine success, offering up aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, nutmeg and...
Guide Bettane 17 points. Vinous 95 points(Neal Martin) Winery Notes: The nose of this Grand Cru is full and rich. There is a great balance with fruity aromas, almost exotic notes. The end is very, long and shows grilled notes and flavours of vanilla. Food Pairings : Foie Gras, Scallops, Scampi or Fowl cooked with herbs and wine. Parcels of Grands Cru overlooks the town of Chablis. Our Vaudésir is facing south that bring a very high power to the wine. Vaudésir 2017 is 100% aged in french oak barrels with 20% new oak We are looking for the right winemaking to balance this power with the high minerality coming from the very deep limestone...
Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy, 93-95 points. “Pale lemon in colour, with a touch of viognier-style ripeness, but still elegant. There is a sweet glowing fruit across the palate, before a racy chiselled finish, with excellent acidity, and impressive persistence. This is on the Preuses side of the vineyard, but the style has, something in common with Les Clos.” JM. Winemaker Notes Cellar master Arnaud Lavantureux expounds that his “idea of wine is to show off the exceptional terroirs of Chablis with élevages in wood that are more ‘Côte de Beaune’ in style, to have a combination of flesh on the attack with saline tension on the...
Wine Enthusiast 94 points. Just a whisper of vanilla wafts on the nose of this steel-honed, fruity Chardonnay. A richly concentrated expression of a ripe vintage, it has Mirabelle and white-melon flavors that are pertly balanced by streaks of lime. Creamy in texture and endless on the finish, it's irresistible young but likely to drink well through 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima. Lemon tree, mineral and flint on the nose with a hint of matchstick. Full-bodied with density and intensity. So much character here. Some phenolics. Flavorful finish. This is so real. Drink now. 93 points JamesSuckling.com Every year the Lavantureux Chablis Vauprin...
92 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "Plenty of minerality to this with chalk, sliced-apple and lemon character. It’s medium-bodied with wonderful length and a fresh finish. Drink now." 10/21 Rich and Fruity, full of minerality with excellent balance. This domain is a benchmark reference for the Chablis Appellation. This estate has been in the hands of the Lavantureux family for 4 generations and covers a total of 20 hectares. It is now run by the latest generation of 2 sons. Arnaud is in charge of vineyards and winemaking, David of sales, communication and marketing. They have made an immediate impact, as judged by their peers in...
Founded in 1860 by Monsieur Régnard, this house is one of Chablis' oldest and most renowned. The Baron Patrick de Ladoucette took it back in 1984 and has since re-established the style and the quality of its wines. In 1992, Baron Patrick de Ladoucette created this cuvée Grand Régnard , in a unique bottle, from the best plots of Chablis. Winemaker Notes A yellow color with green highlights. A fruity bouquet both expressive and reminiscent of white fruit (peaches) supported with mineral notes. The palate is fresh and superbly balanced between fat and acidity. The finish is mineral and gourmand. The Grand Régnard is made from a selection of...
