Type: White Wine
Clément Lavallée comes from a long line of Chablis growers and winemakers, but the 2019 vintage is the first under his own label. After an early interest in oenology, at the age of 15, Clement left home to travel France and the world looking for knowledge and inspiration. He worked in Burgundy, Beaujolais, Bordeaux and Australia, deepening his experience and developing his understanding of organic and biodynamic farming.
Clément uses no chemicals or insecticides in the vineyard and is working towards full organic viticulture. In addition, he is using more natural practices in the cellar, such as utilizing only native yeast fermentation, no sulfur during pressing and moving the must by gravity rather than pumping. As a vigneron, Clément has taken his diverse influences and channeled them towards making fresh, modern wines from lesser-known appellations. By embracing Chablis, Saint-Bris, and Côtes d’Auxerre, he is part of a new generation of winemakers who are exploring the vast potential that still lies uncovered throughout Burgundy.
